Internet Explorer "As a team, we've spent the last year heads down working hard on IE8. Last week, we achieved an important milestone that should interest web developers. Internet Explorer 8 now renders the 'Acid2 Face' correctly in IE8 standards mode." Insert freezing and hell joke.

It means that MS offers a certain capability for those that want it. What they may do is is create a superset capability for IE and get the major content generator tools to support it. The next step is for corporate America to embrace these tools (Bill Gates hugging) which means that other clients won't be able to "keep up". Those that do use HTML 4.01 strict and CSS will probably have no trouble on IE. The answer might be for the US and EU to standardize on a set of document types and pass laws that force content generators to not superset or invalidate them.
