It still has the "LS" check.

I've submitted feedback to the SoftXMLLib project using the form in  

In http://www.softxml.com/softxmllib/SoftXMLLib.js

Please remove the use of document.implementation.hasFeature('LS', '3.0')  
and document.implementation.createLSParser(1,null). It is not necessary  
anymore and is causing problems for browsers and may cause the  
specification for hasFeature to special-case 'LS' if there are many sites  
using SoftXMLLib.js.

Feel free to comment on the Mozilla bug or post to www-dom@w3.org if you  
have comments or questions about this.


I don't object to special-casing "LS" in the spec if you end up  
implementing that in Gecko.

Oh, I probably meant the link-less web application. I didn't notice the  
site in comment 8.
