Internet Explorer Recently, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 8, which boasted much better standards compliance than previous iterations of the browser.

Microsoft Australia's Nick Hodge has stated that Microsoft purposefully decided not to support Acid3, because the test tests against draft standards.

I meant version of Level meaning a bug was discovered in the standard - not an implementation, but the standard itself. This happened before, but I can't remember which it was, and for what reason.

There are also different versions of PNG 1.2, according to WikiPedia.

I actually understand parsers & interpreters ( i.e. browsers ) exceedingly well having written quite a few implementations myself, I just haven't ever had the need to code for standards compliance - I'm a ground-up kinda guy.
