Hello Tantek!

Thanks you for doing such a great job - putting so many standards in one 
small and fast browser.
I wish you and MacIE team the best in coming New Year, and 
  **  Merry Christmas to everyone  ** !

BTW: do you plan to port Tasman engine on other platforms (Windows, 
Linux/UNIX'es, PDA's)?
I am pretty much interested in your work, but as I don't have Mac it's pretty 
hard to test and/or use your browser.
Next computer I am going to buy would be, most likely, one of these cool new 
PDAs (Compaq iPAQ, Sharp Zaurus) with 64MB of RAM and color TFT screen.

Best wishes,

Vadim

|   It is probably of interest to this list that we have made numerous CSS
| fixes and improvements (mostly esoteric), for example:
|
|   - improved/stricter keyword parsing [1]
|   - case sensitive treatment of class and ID [2]
|   - application of CSS style sheets to XML [3]
|   - CSS character escapes [4]
|   - CSS2 Universal Selector '*' [5]
|   - CSS2 Child Selector '>' (nondeterministic matching) [6]
|   - CSS2 Adjacent Sibling Selector '+' (nondeterministic matching) [7]
|   - Specificity of non-CSS presentational hints [8]
|   - font-weight values [9]
|   - CDO/CDC parsing in inline style sheets [10]
|   - styling of <hr>, <br> elements [11]
|   - collapsing empty HTML <p> elements as display:none [12]
|   - ignoring invalid @imports [13]
|
|   Aside from these improvements, a few interesting user interface
| improvements have been made such as the ability to drag and drop arbitrary
| images and hyperlinks (and hyperlinked images) to the button bar.
