How Chaste?

Posted by mashkenes on February 4, 2008

After reading the first chapter of Zeldman’s book and its discussion of browser detection and the “version” problem, it was interesting to see Eric Meyer’s article in A List Apart http://www.alistapart.com/articles/fromswitchestotargets and then Andy Budd’s 01/22/08 post on his blog http://www.andybudd.com/archives/2008/01/has_internet_ex/#more  where the specter of version-detection in IE8 is causing some concerns.  I won’t pretend to fully understand enough about the arguments being made – I’m hoping I will as I get deeper into this course – but it seems to me to somewhat tie in to the question of how rigid and pure one should be in adhering to web standards.  I came across a post which has some interesting perspectives on that http://www2.jeffcroft.com/blog/2007/aug/29/standards-web-standards-and-standardistas/

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! The last link. One thing I always focus on is approaching each project and using what we know about standards to help us solve it in the most efficient way possible. Sometimes rules need to be bent or broken, it totally depends on the situation and the project at hand.
