Low on hype, high on practicality — that’s why I admire the WHATWG.
Gruber aime construire l'avenir sur des sables mouvants. La WHAT Task Force mérite vraiment notre admiration.

Ian's arguments are entirely based on browser behavior, when it
suits him, and entirely based on speculation when it doesn't.
We have had several discussions on terminology and language
definition for which he has shown no interest in consistency.
We have argued about URI and URL algorithms for which his claim
of browser implementation has turned out to be utterly false.
We are still arguing about the definition of Content-Language
as a pragma in HTML5, even though that definition is technically
wrong, not implemented by the majority of browsers let alone
any of the thousand or so content management systems, actively
harmful to deployed content, disagrees with the normative
MIME and HTTP definitions, breaks the principle of orthogonality
that is core to Web architecture, and even manages to misuse
the term "pragma" for something that is very clearly metadata.
Euh... dtg ?
