    And, they did it "intentionally": http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2005/09/15/467901.aspx

    That is so stupid as to be beyond belief. It takes less effort to parse a document served as that mime type; you need to use an XML parser, and if there are any errors, it won't render at all. Compare that to an SGML/HTML parser which, as implemented by most browsers, tries to correct bad markup on its own.

    At least IE7 has far improved CSS and PNG support, but my god, support the freaking standards, Microsoft.

    Well, I'm sort of okay with their deciding to actually write a goddamn XML parser... If they had hacked XHTML in like they've hacked HTML and CSS in, we would have been whining about far more annoying problems..

    But even IE6 had an XML parser: just try viewing any XML document in Internet Explorer, and it'll transform it into a nice clickable tree.

    So... What's missing? Probably the ability to apply CSS to XML. Surprise!

    They're still not fully sypporting CSS. I think it is safe to say IE will never be standards compliant.
