Description

The Faculty of Architecture of University of Applied Sciences Potsdam site
rejects Mozilla because "you never know in how far it complies to W3C
standards". They do however support Netscape 4 and IE4+. The site may not be
overly important to the average mozilla user but still...

I have attached a proposed evangelism letter (in german). Do I need a r= before
sending it off?

How can I accept the bug? I have selected that option but it does not seem to
have an effect.

The letter is OK. I don't know about a r=, sr= or a= for evangelism letters =)

So send it off and good luck.

No need for an r= or anything but there is a site bc has that makes the letters
for you etc. Don't remember what its is off hand.

Just another Javascript kiddie who can't figure out how to write "dynamic" HTML
for Mozilla.

OK, I've sent the letter off (addressed to w3team@fh-potsdam.de). Let's see how
they react.

Keyser, you were probably talking about the mozilla evangelism tool
(http://mozilla-evangelism.bclary.com/letter/en-letter.html).

But so far the evangelism letters have not been translated into german yet (see
bug 86690) although I have read in the Status Report from June 27 that Doron
Rosenberg was working on these translations, still there is no open bug for that.

For those which aren't German-capable: The site has been designed using the
document.layers[] and document.all APIs. (so much about W3C-Standards pfft!)
Moreover the original author no longer maintains it (and presumably wants
nothing to do with it).

It looks like the current maintainer is Anita Gaenssler
<gaensler@fh-potsdam.de>. So I should probably send her the layer evangelism
letter. I don't really feel like translating it right now though. Maybe I'll
wait for Doron to do it ;) From the looks of it, it doesn't seem likely that
Anita would port the JS to the new API anyhow.
