ThML: Theological Markup Language
This document describes Theological Markup Language, a new markup language that is being used to mark up texts for the Christian Classics Ethereal Library and other projects. This XML application can be thought of as HTML with additions for electronic books and rich digital libraries, with special support for theological needs such as scripture references and Strongs numberings.

Chris Nelson: Response to Jeffrey Zeldman of the WSP.
It didn't take long for the Web Standards Project to come out with yet another hilarious piece of rambling.
Jeffrey Zeldman: Reply to Mozillazine.
While complaining about Flanagan, you take the opportunity to once again gripe about "the raving loonies of the WSP" (sic), whom you plan to "clobber the hell out of" if we "continue to act like pussies."

If you would rather call us "loonies" and "pussies" than acknowledge what we and hundreds of other developers are actually telling you, then I don't know what to say to you other than "good luck."
Chris Nelson: Netscape Cannot Win.
I have recently become convinced that Netscape is fighting a losing battle against third-party micro-managing in their attempt to produce a browser for market.

Microsoft seeks testers for IE6
Version 6.0, according to ActiveWin.com and WinInformant.com, will get a more digital-media facelift. Microsoft will add Explorer toolbars that will allow users to work more easily with digital images, music, and video clips
...
And Microsoft will almost certainly add the new dynamic HTML and cascading-style-sheet technologies to IE6 that it unveiled last week as part of its service pack 1 update to Version 5.5.
Using Microsoft's XMLHTTP Object.
From Rudy Limeback comes this wonder: a nice sortable form field. But it's a select box, not a dropdown.
Netscape Navigator 6.0 to Fail Standards Compliance:
Netscape is rushing to release version 6.0 of its Navigator browser despite the fact that there are serious problems with its compliance to open standards. I'm writing to express my dismay at the number of standards-compliance bugs that remain in the Navigator 6.0 code base, and at the end of this article I'm requesting that like-minded developers register their comments and sign their names in protest.
I was inclined to think "shut up and let them release the browser" until I saw the bugs that are due to be released in 6.0.
You know you've played too many stupid tricks with your son's toys when he says "You didn't really eat that snake, papa, you just did some magic."
