I have had my own website for over 10 years (modems anyone).

If you look at it with Firefox - there are problems.

Have a note for Firefox users about it on my home page.

>From other lists and the web pubs I receive - Firefox
is more adherent than IE 7 to the W3 standards.

Note that I have used the same service to gather web stats
for years and so I can look at my history of tens of thousands
of hits.

Now going to run a trend on my Firefox note page for the
Firefox users (lurkers may find it to be very interesting) as
I have received many emails from them concerning their percent
of the market.

Firefox visitors still comprise less than 2 percent of my
visitor pool years after its introduction to the browser wars.

My audience is 90% engineering and other high tech firms.

Note that the artists I deal with (magazine layout artists and
illustration artists) have quite different stats.

They have a heavy Mac user audience so their stats are much
different.

Do not want to start a list argument here.

Just stating the facts for those who may not run stats on
their sites - or for those who wonder what years of stats show.

Hoping I do not have to turn on emergency email blocking . . .

;-)

Not current HTML and CSS, sorry. Older standards are
fine, but that relates to the historical split I
mentioned.

In my view, Firefox really blew it for all web
developers, in the same way Netscape did, and with the
same results. As much as I support Open Source, I have
to admit that most OSS projects imitiate corporate
ones "with a twist," and fail as a result.

Comparisons to the bug-ridden OpenOffice are welcome.
