our goal in developing Internet Explorer 8 is to support the right set of standards

And by "the right set of standards" we mean microsoft ones, slave. Stay tuned.

Lolz, I used FireFox not IE however if the support css is better for IE it will give us Developers less stress...because we wont have to write long lines of code to make it work in all browsers.

You cant just assume that MS is only looking out for themselves...they could honestly be working toward a set of standards that any company can comply to (*snicker*...right) .....stranger things have happened right? :blink:

I hate this Microsoft crap of "support the right set of standards with excellent implementations and do so without breaking the existing web". They just don't get it. They have made some crappy decisions in the past and in order to get on page with everyone else they are going to have to make some changes that will break non conformed pages. Besides, if they are going to go towards the W3C, like they should, not much of the web is going to break. Firefox conforms to most of the W3C standards and only pages completely coded to someone in IE are broken (*ahem some of MSDN*).

What they are going to do with that comment is that they are going to attempt to conform to some standards out there, but again carry the legacy crap along with them. As long as the legacy methods are still available, people are going to continue using them!

Get with the program Microsoft and just make a new IE 8 that conforms to W3C. Run it in parallel to IE 7 if you have to and work on migrating everyone over.

I'm a FF user - have been for years (I think it was called Phoenix back then), but even so, I'm not looking to start a pi**ing contest. However, I just noticed something interesting. I did the Acid2 test using FF 2.0.0.11, and here's what it rendered:

Should look like:

According to the IE blog IE8 rendered it correctly. Is this not a big deal, or is it food for thought?
