No, the point is that all modern browsers are rendering that page with broken code badly, but that IE has a compatibility view that allows it to be viewed "as it was tested to work in the past". This compatibility view is the reason that IE is better at running broken code.


IE's compatibility mode is for viewing sites designed around IE5, IE5.5 & IE6 quirks. Therefore IE is only better at running broken code that was written specifically for it.
