Standards does exist. It's the problem of the implementator,  
especially the browser makers, who each thinks a smart a** and ignore  
those standards.

Well, actually this doesn't happen only on web development, it happens  
almost on all things, especially in the software world. Is there any  
standard upon window managers (gtk1, gtk2, qt, etc)? Isn't it the main  
reason why you wrote fpGUI in the first place? Is SQL standard  
completely obeyed by all database engines? Even directory stuctures  
are different among Linux distros! I could go on with more examples,  
but you should get the idea.

I don't think it's fair to bash web development while in fact it also  
happens on desktop development. I'm just trying to be fair and  
objective. :)
