  Do they? Grrrrrk.

Yep... see http://www.zdnet.com/pcweek/news/0325/25psock.html for the
nasty details.          

The irony here is that Microsoft has been pitching itself to the
stylesheets-and-SGML crowd as having wised up to the error of its
former ways and become much more friendly to the standards process.
(They have in fact, stopped barely short of claiming outright to be
defending the standards process against the encroachment of Netscape).

This has always looked to me like a temporary marketing ploy, rather
than a true change of heart, but even so, you'd *think* they'd know
enough not to do an old-style bait-and-switch with their *networking*
API "standard" while they're at it...
