Farewell and thank you
Tantek Çelik, lead developer of the Tasman rendering engine found in Mac IE 5 and author of various parts of CSS2 (2.1) and 3, officially left yesterday Microsoft to join Technorati. We’ll use this small note to thank Tantek for the good work with Mac IE, a browser that was far ahead of its time, all those years ago. Tantek left us with a small farewell present in the form of the “ie5macbandpass filter”, to link to a style sheet that only Mac IE can see. We’ve added this little tidbit to our IE Mac bug pages, along with some links to explanations about this mechanism.
Thanks, Tantek, and good luck with your new projects.
