Please note that this list is not a platform for discussing the faults
and highlights of various CSS implementation in browsers. For that,
you are better off on the CSS-Discuss mailing list or the ciwas
newsgroup [1]. This list is intended to discuss the specs, and you
seem to have no trouble with them ;)

IE6 will probably show these examples according to spec, when you
ensure it uses its 'Standards mode' rendering. With an old Doctype in
your HTML file, or no Doctype at all, IE switches to its bugward
compatible 'Quirks mode' [2].
