A Web designers? lobby group has claimed it is unhappy with the latest release of Microsoft?s Internet Explorer (IE) browser because the offering does not do a good job of implementing Internet standards.
According to Microsoft, IE 5.0, which was officially launched on Thursday, supports such Internet standards as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) 4.0, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 1.0, Document Object Model (DOM) 1.0 and Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0.
But according to the Web Standards Project (WSP), support for each of these standards is patchy.
George Olsen, design director at 2 Lane Media and project leader at the WSP, said: "We?re disappointed that Internet Explorer 5.0 has not done a better job supporting standards because Microsoft has shown that it does have excellent programmers."
He added that Netscape?s current browser, Communicator 4.5, faced similar issues, although, early versions of Communicator 5.0 suggested that it did a much better job of implementing standards.
Ironically, the WSP also claimed that IE 4.5 for the Macintosh was more compliant with some standards that IE 5.0 for Windows.
