Mac IE and Win IE parse and render the following:

	<BODY STYLE="{color: red}">

While the specification doesn't say this is illegal, I never recall seeing
an example of the STYLE attribute used this way in documentation or in test
suites and was wondering what you think.

I also noted that the above case with curly braces also renders when used
with a valid HTML 4 Strict DTD.
