If your Internet connection happens to lose a bit of CSS data, you get a mess on your screen. […]
The real problem is that no two browsers—let alone no two versions of any one browser—interpret CSS the same way! The Microsoft browser interprets a style sheet one way, Firefox interprets it another way, and Opera a third way. Can someone explain to me exactly what kind of „standard“ CSS is, anyway?
Nebenbei: Ich habe noch kein CSS verloren, trotzdem ist es gut, immer ein wenig CSS dabei zu haben. Anderen passiert aber schonmal Schlimmeres – CSS scheint auch als Diebesgut Hochkonjunktur zu haben.
Consequently, it reminds us to keep advocating for greater consistency between browsers, to praise the efforts of browser makers in that direction, and to help them correct their course when they move in the wrong direction—and to do so constructively, not destructively. For while we may gain insights from the rantings of trolls, we should never be so foolish as to adopt their tactics.
