Since I've recently subscribed to this list, I thought a short
introduction is in order.

I am Peter-Paul Koch, freelance front-end consultant in Amsterdam, the
Netherlands. I maintain http://quirksmode.org, currently the most
important source for browser incompatibility information on the

I have been hired by Vodafone to help them create widgets, research
mobile browser compatibility, and several other jobs. Part of my job
is to review the Widget specifications and suggest changes. I should
stress that I'm in no way a Vodafone representative, though; if I
represent anyone it would be the common (desktop) web developer who
wants to get started with widget creation.

I am mainly interested in interoperability; another one of my jobs is
the creation of a test widget that will run on as many platforms as
possible, including those that strictly speaking do not support W3C
Widgets but do offer some way of running HTML/CSS/JavaScript content
in a browsing environment without (necessarily) accessing the Web
every time the widget is run.

I'm currently reading through the current drafts and have some
questions that I'll ask in a separate mail.
