Subject Re: dynamic styles in IE for MyFaces AJAX?
Date Mon, 13 Jul 2009 11:47:51 GMT
Being naive and not understanding the details of this issue, I want
just to comment on breaking compatibility. I think that at this
particular moment is not that bad if what we get is a better
implementation, because this is what users want. If you say that it
makes life easier for component developers this should be a good
change, and creating new components was never the best thing in the
previous versions. Is it breaking the spec? Or an
implementation/interpretation of the spec issue? If it is the latter,
there are good chances that mojarra will be updated as well, no? And
if the spec is not clear, it should be fixed.

Keep up the good work,
