Overly Sharpened Blog

They never told me what happens when you sharpen the saw too much...

HTML is to the web as assembler is to computing

I'm kinda surprised that there haven't been more projects taking a translation/compilation approach to working around IE's rendering deficiencies. We have a good specification of how things are supposed to work, and many years of experience with how they actually work in various browsers.

Is it that the folks interested in compilers and such just aren't interested in web technology? (Well, when I put it that way...)

IE6 CSS Fixer is an example of the sort of approach that I think could yield big benefits, especially with guidance from someone with some compiler-writing experience. Splitting the general problems of graphic design and application development from the tinkering needed for cross-browser issues would mean one less rather annoying pebble in many folks' shoes.
