How about a better definition of Quirks Mode? In most browsers,  
Quirks Mode includes new properties, like text-shadow in Safari, but  
in IE it doesn't even include max-width, which is extremely  
frustrating when I have to style pages written in HTML 3.2. Can there  
be a definition that says Quirks Mode renders according to old  
standards for properties that existed at that time, but that newer  
properties should also be included too, as they are in most browsers?
