public-html-comments posting from: Olivier Henny <>

Dear W3C,
Please step up and use your position as leading webstandard, html5
video is becoming a serious problem, please invite all mayor browser
makers to discuss a standard video format/enforce it on them, if
Microsoft doesnt cooporate, at least get the rest of the browsers to
play toghether. PLEASE.

Thats all, beyond that im more then pleased with how HTML5 is turning out.
Best regards,
Olivier Henny (a daily html using developer :P)

PS: Your feedback form ( wont work in
firefox or chrome? (js enabled, tho i get a error its not)

This comment is not a request for any specific changes to the any deliverables of the HTML WG, so I'm moving this to Resolved. If you want to request specific changes to the HTML5 spec or to any other HTML WG deliverables, please either file bugs for them, or post them to the comments list.
