With the development of IE7, Microsoft has a once-in-a-decade
opportunity to show that they care about web standards. The Acid2 test
has been written to help browser vendors make sure their products
correctly support features that web designers would like to use. Make
sure you tell you favorite browser vendor (including Opera) to fix the
problems exposed by Acid2. When IE7 is out, this should be the first
URL you type in:
