Here I disagree.

He said it and I repeated it.  I do know that IE5 for mac was the first 
browser to break 99% compatability for which I was very happy (something I 
read right here on www.w3.org).  I was estatic when IE 5.5 and IE 6 came out 
because of their increased support for CSS1.  I was specifically referring 
to CSS as a design goal.  MS hasn't adopted any version of CSS beyond CSS1 
and has said as much via its statement that there will be no significant 
development of IE in the future.

My free e-mail address hosted by a company owned by Microsoft which has made 
it a core part of their strategy.  Do you blame me for not paying for my 
e-mail address?  Where exactly does the amount I pay for my e-mail account 
fit in?  Also I've never even read a whole slashdot article or posted there 
once because I find their lack of fact-checking terrible.

I agree with this with respect to CSS1 though I'm not sure where CSS2 is 
going to go much less 3 and 4 and all the unwritten version yet to come if 
MS doesn't adopt CSS fully.  If MS has some strategy that

p.s. By the way, I don't troll.  I may make a typo which this very well 
could have been seeing as how the word CSS you might have had a problem 
with, but if I had simply forgotten to write a 2 afterwards, then your 
response would have been a very inappropriate.
