    Well pressure Mozilla to release an ActiveX add-on. And no, I don't think Microsoft needs to make it compliant to non-Microsoft products. Their clipart and template galleries are features offered to customers who use their products.

    The same happens in Firefox, as long as you clear the floats in the right places you're ok

    * Fixed width: auto
    * Double float margin bug
    * :hover on all elements
    * Proper box model and fixed positioning

    Even just fixing the box model on its own would be a big relief for a ton of designers out there. Few people have an idea of how many hacks your average CSS-based site has to address this single problem alone.
    You can avoid the box-model issues entirely in IE by seperating padding/borders from width/height anyway.. Simple practice offers a simple solution Regardless, I'm going to be stuck here having to use the holly hack all the time for IE5+6 for a couple of years anyway so whilst this is a big jump, nothing will change for us

    I always love new Windows Update versions. They look so pretty!

    (And BITS is still doing its job, so I don't see very much of an end-user feature upgrade)

    Good explanation.
