Thanks, Julian but I have already dealt with 'Quirks mode' in IE in the
article, and it's not a problem:

The big problem you are going to have particularly with more 
sophisticated designs is that the line <?xml version="1.0" 
encoding="utf-8"?> Throws IE into 'Quirks mode' which tends to mess up 
designs.

I don't have any examples to hand, but if you google for 'IE quirks 
mode' you should throw up some more info.
