    But old browsers don’t work that way. Lax to the point of absurdity, they gobble up broken markup and bad links to JavaScript source files without a hiccup, in most cases displaying the site as if it were authored correctly. This laxity has encouraged front-end designers and developers to develop bad habits—and also persuaded middleware and backend developers to view technologies like XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript as contemptibly primitive. Those who do not respect a tool are unlikely to use it correctly.
    Note: Old habits die hard.
