It's up to the browser developers to render perfect valid HTML documents  
according to the specifications. »Quirks« and »Standard compliance mode«  
are moving targets, so I don't care anymore about the reasons for a bug. A  
bug is a bug is a bug. That's all I want to know.
If tests had to handle all the various different kinds of -- ahem  
--rendering modes, they would become ridiculously complicated...
