    I'm suggesting a new project of a W3C COMPLIANT Shopping Cart system with a focus on EASE OF INSTALLATION as well.

    I suggest that we model after Amazon's system of product display. I've been working on some pseudo code.

    I'm talking about something that "out of the box" is compliant and viewable on ANY platform/browser. It's the ability to view it even on PDA's.

    There's nothing out there that I can find that does this. We can even make it "skinnable" with CSS and something other than "nuke" style 3 column.

    If you're interested or would like some more info on the type of compliance I'm talking just ask.

    I'm really interested in doing this and giving it to the community. I'd even host the development site and a forum for it.

    Ok - "money where the mouth is" time...

    osCommerce fails W3C HTML 4.01 transitional, but if you look
    at the errors, a majority of them are due to the URL formation,
    which I do not consider serious. There's a few browser tricks
    they do to which are not W3C friendly, but over all I would
    consider it more than satisfactory. This is in reference to both
    the cart and the admin tool.

    I've seen osCommerce come up beautiful in:

    Mozilla (PC & Mac)
    IE (PC & Mac: IE5.0, 5.5, 6.x PC, IE5.2 Mac)
    Opera (PC)
    Netscape (see Mozilla)
    Safari

    I haven't tested it with:
    Konqueror
    Lynx
