Jeffrey Zeldman: ‘In Defense of Version Targeting’

Zeldman says yes for IE 8’s proposed version targeting, on the grounds that it’s the only way Microsoft will bring IE 8 into further compliance with standards:

  • With version targeting, IE stays on the path of web standards.
  • Without it, ineptly made websites “break,” putting IE’s standards compliance at risk.
  • If IE were to stop supporting standards, standards would stop working.
