the acid2 challenge

Eric Mayer has some interesting thoughts concerning the focus the Acid2 browser challenge has on Internet Explorer over other browsers.

The Acid2 test, issued last week by the CTO of Opera, is a challenge to Microsoft to improve support of CSS2 standards in the upcoming IE7. Apparently, it will be sponsored by the Web Standards Project and will consist of a test page (to be built) that will …”use features Web designers crave, such as fixed positioning of elements“.
That test page will be hosted here:

Slashdot had its perspective too.

    Bit of a rash post, since I was originally baisng the system on the ASCII charset. UTF-8 compliance is a current objective, and the pigs are lined up on HMS Ark Royal awaiting flight clearance.
