The best thing about web standards is never having to say you’re sorry. (Joe)
Well, actually there are a lot of good things about webstandards, but besides that your documents are semantically correct, more accessible, faster to load and platform independent, we now have a way of creating webpages that is ‘the-right-way-to-do-it’ and that puts the burden of not being rendered correctly where it belongs: at the Browser vendor!
So yeah, you do not have to say sorry anymore. If somebody wants to visit valid pages with a poor browser, it’s their problem.
I don’t mean to say that proper rendering shouldn’t interest you though… just that when you have to choose between a hack or using standards… well, you figure it out 🙂
