Be wary of CSS test suites, as IE6 only uses strict compliance when it gets
a <!doctype> in the referring HTML document -- this shouldn't matter much,
as to be strictly valid HTML, it should have a <!doctype> anyway -- or so
says http://validator.w3.org/ :o)

It's a shame, as my preferred test suite at
http://www.richinstyle.com/php/results.php has just fallen foul of this.

PS: Sorry if this is a duplicate, this is a resend as I believe the listserv
blackholed the first message due to our company changing the domain on
outgoing mail...

following the CSS spec. The description of the new CSS support in IE6
Preview at
proves me wrong as of IE6. Thank you, Microsoft.
