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

Many of the standards are already made. SVG 1.1, DOM level 2, DOM level 3 - already W3C Recommendations for many a year. Before taking the statement at face value, its wise to check which specs are in fact used in Acid3 and what the status is of each.
