Hi Anne,
No one asked for an apology, but nevertheless, to you and your colleagues,
I wanted to apologize for appearing to omit Opera when I said Webkit and/or
Mozilla. Maybe I can excuse myself by saying everyone knows that of course
Opera has world-class support of W3C standards. But the main reason I
listed WebKit and Mozilla was because I wanted to point out that there are
two open source browser projects that implements W3C standards faithfully,
one of which has proven to be suitable for mobile phones, so there is no
excuse (such as licensing fees) for a company that provides a widget system
to not implement W3C document format standards. But people should not
forget that Opera is also there should there be a need for a partner, and
Opera also runs on mobile phones.

Jon

Yeah, I think it would make sense to mandate support for particular web
formats as well for web browsers implementing widgets.
