[2:38pm] Hixie: abarth: the </p</div> thing was for compat with IE
[2:39pm] abarth: Hixie: i see.  some folks in the webkit community are worried
about whether that will cause problems for mobile sites that are used to a
webkit monoculture 
[2:39pm] Hixie: yup, it probably will.
[2:40pm] zcorpan_: abarth: opera does the same thing as IE for < in tags. we've
found that there are some pages that break if we follow mozilla, and other
pages break if we follow ie
[2:40pm] zcorpan_: abarth: however we've followed ie here for a long time and
it doesn't come up very often
[2:48pm] abarth: zcorpan_: i see
[2:48pm] abarth: zcorpan_: maybe its a crapshoot either way
[2:48pm] abarth: i'm all for aligning behavior so we don't have these problems
in the future
[2:49pm] abarth: i'm not sure how to estimate the risks in the mobile space
[2:49pm] abarth: but there are also likely counterbalancing risks in the
intranet that IE folks are worried about
