Simply not true. Their JavaScript support has always diverged wildly, and the CSS support in IE7 solves none of the incompatibilities. CSS3 is simply not going to happen, and there are still parts of CSS2 that haven't been fixed.

You could say that about their javascript (or jscript as they call it). However, just because document.all exists, doesn't mean document.getElementById doesnt exist. I have had more problems with javascript and safari then javascript and ie.

As for CSS3, nobody supports it because its not that great a spec. CSS2 suppport is better, while not all of the rendering bugs were fixed in IE7, some of them were.

Worrying about five different versions of .Net to target, with more on the way presumably, is not solving anyone's problems.

You get that with any VM language. (java is FAR worse)
