Hi all,

just read http://www.webfoundation.org/programs/

In the "Programs" section it reads that its goals are:

----------

Web Technology and Practice

The goals of this program are:
To promote the development of technology and standards that foster
creativity, collaboration, communication, and commerce.
To encourage the spread of new technology that can be integrated and
used alongside existing technology, ensuring the stable evolution of the
Web.
To ensure that the technology enables anyone to use the Web from any
device, anywhere.

To reach these goals, the initial activity for the program will be to
support the development of open, interoperable, high-quality Web
Standards. A strong standards foundation has been one of the most
important enablers of the exponential growth of the Web.

-----------

I wonder if this foundation would help to financially support the
development of an SVG plugin for IE if it is done by OS programmers from
Mozilla or Webkit.

What do you think?

I also consider this in the light of Tim Berners-Lee's press release:
