Today the world was invited to take a look at Opera's under-development HTML 5 parser.

Making its debut in a Labs build this week is Ragnarök, our implementation of the HTML5 Parsing algorithm... The HTML5 specification defines a set of parsing rules for all markup, whether valid or invalid.

[my.opera.com...]

The article goes on to show why the world NEEDS a standard set of parsing rules for invalid code - error recovery. Pretty cool.

And the sentence right after that ...

... Once all browsers have HTML5 parsers, the same markup will produce the same DOM across all conforming browsers
emphasis mine


Oh those dastardly non-conforming browsers!

I like the bullet point in regards to the DOM and JavaScript. Can you imagine how much more lightweight your JavaScript could be?
