A New Standards Compliance Test

The Web Standard Project has released Acid2, “a test page written to help browser vendors ensure proper support for web standards in their products.” Currently, Firefox fails slightly, Safari (unfortunately) fails rather miserably, and Mac IE won’t load the test (Mac IE was discontinued three years ago). Fortunately, Safari users have little to fear. Dave Hyatt, one of the Safari developers, is hard at work on fixing the bugs which have been made apparent by this test.
