Subject [classlib][html] HTML 3.2 or 4.01
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 20:16:30 GMT
HI all:
Intel has just contributed javax.swing.text.html, based on HTML 4.01. Sun's
implementation, on the other hand, claims to be based on HTML 3.2, although
there are same differences.
¿Which one should we follow? ¿Both? The parser behavior is parameterized by
a DTD, so perhaps we should provide a 3.2 DTD, to be compatible with Sun,
and a 4.01 DTD.
Any ideas?
