Since the beginning I've been saying to everyone that it isn't true and it won't be for a long time."

What is a bug?

Among all the comments here, there is one big difference here between HTML5 and former standards that seems to be missed: With HTML5, you know what a bug is. Before, the spec was not explicit enough, so what was a bug and what wasn't was often a matter of speculation. One person's "bug" was another person's "feature".

At least with HTML5 we can identify a bug.
