Internet Explorer The new version of Internet Explorer in Longhorn 4051 is version 6.05.4051.0.  Even though Longhorn is many years away (if ever!) the folks at Microsoft have realized that people want more from their browser, due to popularity of the competition, ex. Mozilla. UPDATE: Longhorn 4051 review.

>>>Oh and (re: someone else) I don't see how they are stopping people from using xhtml1.1. I am just finishing up a website for a client that is xhtml1.1 based. The beauty of xhtml+css is that you can work around crappy browsers with different stylesheets. keeping browser specific work arounds in an isolated section of the code.

How are you serving the xhtml 1.1 pages? The MIME type for xhtml 1.1 SHOULD NOT be text/html. It SHOULD be application/xhtml+xml. It MAY be application/xml or text/xml.

And serving xhtml 1.0 as text/html (while allowed), but be discouraged anyway.

Can anyone tell me whether IE 6.05 in Longhorn can be served with application/xhtml+xml?
