What year are they living in

It’s happening all over again. News.com has an article about web developers, and how most of them are choosing to develop strictly for Internet Explorer, at the detriment of all other browsers. They keep parroting the same line that it takes longer to code for different browsers. Jeez, what year are they living in, anyway? Write your page to XHTML, use CSS1, CSS2 if you’re feeling brave, and that’s it. IE6 and Mozilla should display it the same. Just like my site. Just like another site I did for Resource Concepts, Inc. Why does everybody act like it’s still 1998 and the two major browsers need completely different markup?

Steve Champeon cuts through the article with a hot knife of his own over at Webstandards.org.
