Subject: Re: browsers and xhtml

Broadly I think that's correct.

I believe IE 6 has a strict mode and a loose mode - one is forgiving and the
other works for standards-conformant content, but I ahven't played around
with it much.

(and there are a number of other XML browsers which are strict)

By the way, general questions on HTML, XHTML and the like are probably
handled on a mailing list directed more closely to those topics.

  would this be roughly right?

  amaya interprets strictly, and refuses to display unless 'correct'
  mozilla tries but
  ie responds most flexibly and will ignore many types of error

  I'm starting to use an xhtml header for our beta and I'm getting very
  different response from these 3 browsers.
