Should Microsoft Be Trusted With Web Standards?

Alex Barnett discusses a bit of controversy, namely that the chair of the W3C’s new HTML working group, which is chartered to progress the HTML standard, is Microsoft’s Internet Explorer program manager, Chris Wilson.

In fact, Alex’s post says it all, so you should just read it. Go! I’ll just sit here and wait for Todd Bishop’s Ford Sync video to show on YouTube…
