No, Mike, it isn't. There was nothing at all stopping MS from
implementing CSS fully *in addition* to the extras. They chose
to ignore the standards and create a product that will instead
lock a web developer into using their own proprietary product.

VBScript is a good example. They have purposely made their
"Jscript" non-compliant with the ECMA standard, and are routing
developers towards their proprietary scripting language. They
*could* have chosen to do a standard scripting language, but
that would have meant that people would have had a choice between
their tools and someone else's. That's heresy in Redmond.

If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
