Internet & Networking Every now and then, you get these news item that make you feel like something's wrong. The item doesn't make sense, shouldn't be possible, and yet it is. Despite Microsoft's newfound commitment to web standards, it's still incredibly unnerving to see things like this - the W3C's first HTML5 compliance test, in which Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 6 outdoes all other browsers.

I'm no expert obviously, but that email really doesn't explain what's wrong with the test. It just says "Opera's results are bogus" - but doesn't say why, what, or how. I'm not saying he's wrong - just that I'd like to know why.

It’s only just over 200 tests and is practically worthless at the moment.

It's also based on IE9 preview - which unless things have changed, MS has said will contain features that don't make it into the final shipping IE9 product. They get a lot of positive buzz this way, but in the end, we won't get a compliant browser.

I'll stick with Flash thanks. :-P
