W3C has released the next

W3C has released the next working document for DOM3 Validation, Load and Save. I haven’t looked that much at the validation part, but the load and save module is really important. Today there are different methods for loading, parsing, serializing and saving XML documents in all browsers. In IE you have to instansiate MSXML/XMLHTTP, in Mozilla you can use createDocument(), in ASV and Batik there is getURL/parseXML/postURL/printNode. Opera doesn’t support it at all. Summary, it’s a mess and we need to do something about it. I’m happy this spec is getting there.
