Two small steps for Gates towards a better web

A little more than a year ago Bill Gates wrote an E-mail about software and interoperability. I hope he noticed the response.

Now, what if Microsoft could ..

  1. Mark obsolete JScript features as "deprecated" over at MSDN. For example the pages on document.all or window.navigate.
  2. Improve the documentation of widely used IE-specific stuff like offset* properties so that the specification actually helps other people be compatible with IE.

That would certainly help interoperability. Unfortunately it's the wrong season for a letter to Santa.
