...and what if I want text to be rendered like Netscape4.x? Would we then have to make a preference to dumb-down the browser for that too? There's really no end to that once you get started. This is exactly the reason we HAVE standards, so that there are a firm set of rules which if everybody follows then nobody has do to that kind of pointless rework.

Ctrl-* vs. Alt-* is something different; that isn't defined by universal standards but by the conventions of the particular environment.

By the way, I'm curious what particular characteristics of text rendering you're referring to-- From my knowledge IE and Moz both follow standards fairly well regarding text; I don't notice hardly any difference between the two.
