Google.com breaks a little bit.  The Advanced Search, Preferences and 
Language Tools links are wrongly aligned.  Though, I was told in IRC 
that a lot of the problems are related to JavaScript and DOM APIs, 
rather than just layout issues.

It was also suggested to me to just go sequentially through the links on 
a site like reddit.com or digg.com, which will give you a range of 
diverse and relatively popular sites.  But the problem is, quite a lot 
of sites do use standards mode these days anyway (especially the ones I 
tend to visit), and a manual search will be quite time consuming.
