Chapter 18. The CSS Saga > Beyond Browsers

Beyond Browsers

The CSS saga isn’t only about Web browsers. Many people outside of the few that program Web browsers have made important contributions to CSS over the past years. Some of them are mentioned in the Preface and we use the few remaining paragraphs of this book to expand on some of them.

The CSSI test suite was an landmark development for CSS and W3C. When the first two CSS implementations came out and could be compared, we realized there was a problem. You could not expect the style sheet tested only in one browser to work in the other browser. To rectify the situation, Eric Meyer – with help from countless other volunteers – developed a test suite that implementors would test against while there still was time to fix the problems. Todd Fahrner created the “acid” test which became the ultimate challenge. See Figure 18.3.
