HåKON WIUM LIE is the CTO of Opera Software. His job is to make sure Opera remains a better, smaller, and faster browser than the one you know. Before joining Opera in 1999, Håkon worked at W3C, where he was responsible for the development of Cascading Style Sheets—a concept he proposed while working at CERN in 1994. Håkon holds an MS degree in visual studies from the MIT Media Lab.

BERT BOS, along with Lie, was one of the original authors of CSS. He joined W3C in 1995 to launch its internationalization activities and currently coordinates its style sheet activities.
