Internet Explorer As it turns out, Google's idea of silently and automatically updating web browsers for security's sake is actually a pretty darn good idea - Chrome is pretty much always up-to-date. Microsoft agrees with this, and has announced it's going to automatically update Internet Explorer on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

They can render standard compliant markup absolutely fine in the vast majority of cases.


No they can't. Sure, if you write a really simple code. But if you want to implement more complex designs, you're almost always running into problems. And almost always it's problems with IE, not any other browser.

Yes you need a valid DOCTYPE declaration ...


... and you're doing it again. First you implied that positioning is the only problem, now we're supposed to think a proper doctype solves everything. We're not saying IE renderns faulty code wrong. We're saying we write a valid code, this piece of crap renders it wrong and we need to spend a lot of our time finding the problem and working around it.
