Today's quotable quote goes to Zeldman...
"In 1998, when Netscape 4 was dumped on the world like an incurable virus ..."
The full quote and article actually raises a good point about why Netscape 4 was so crap in a particular manner:
Ironically, absolute positioning works well in Netscape 4. Seems absolute positioning is the only part of CSS1 that Netscape attempted to get right in their 4.0 browser. Which makes sense in a way. In 1998, when Netscape 4 was dumped on the world like an incurable virus, semantic markup and separation of presentation from structure were not high on most people’s wish lists. Absolute positioning promised visual control, and that’s pretty much all most of us cared about.
