Jeffrey points out that much hell has been raised due to the publishing of "99.9% of Websites are Obsolete", the first of many chapters to Jeffrey's up-and-coming book "Forward Compatibility: Designing & Building With Standards." He notes that not only are the threads on What Do I know and SVN still active (see yesterday's post), but a new thread started up on MetaFilter. Jeffrey points out that many of the negative posts are due to misinterpretation more than anything... and then there are a few opinions about WaSP and even about Zeldman own character. I find that misinterpretation is often the case when it comes to negative views of standards and I believe that personal character attacks are simply childish.
