I never said anything about any browser being "non-standards-compliant".
All I said was that it a browser that does not support "documents.all"
is behaving correctly. It might be correct to support it too.

Bjoern however said that "document.all" does not work correctly in
Mozilla. It does, since it doesn't work at all, and that is correct.

I should however not have written "_the_ correct behaviour" since
that implies that there is only one correct behaviour for non-standard
objects.
