    Because it's replacing the old models Netscape and IE have used since the time of the browser wars.

    These articles helped me get a small little grip.

    Did they work for you? I'm no programmer and they sort of took it down to a level I could understand.

    I envy you ez4ne12c. I wish I had started out long ago when things weren't as complicated and complex as today. You guys are the ones that has a ground to stand on.

    (Why doesn't this otherwise super nice forum have a cry smilie? I need to cry sometimes.)
