ALA: Every Time You Call a Proprietary Feature CSS3, a Kitten Dies

A List Apart gets it right: stop screwing with the terminology. Correct naming matters.

Every time you call a proprietary feature “CSS3,” a kitten dies. Any -webkit- feature that doesn’t exist in a specification (not even an Editor’s draft) is not CSS3.

I have been hearing this for a while. But what bothers me even more is when people mix up HTML, CSS and Javascript, calling anything that is animated or flashy HTML5. Some don’t know better, but some of them should.
