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 ..
- Mark obsolete JScript features as "deprecated" over at MSDN. For example the pages on document.all or window.navigate.
- 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.
