"Bug reports and other requests for standards support are ignored for years by IE developers."


Anyone that works in software gets used to this, and it isn't MS-specific. There just aren't enough hours or brainwaves in the day to fix everything. You triage, and sometimes you ignore. Sad but true.

Several years ago I encountered a rendering bug in FF, that when I reported it was stunned to find it was already almost ten years old (probably better than 15 years now), persisting from early Netscape days. It had been actively reported and updated the whole time. Some helpful users had even submitted patches. I bet it is still there.
