The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, htmlhelp.com and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

NS 4.x was written prior to a lot of standards. Mozilla does *not* support proprietary standards, only W3C ones (although how long it will be before they ditch the W3C in favour of open standards with the W3C contemplating/beginning to accept patents is interesting to contemplate). Thus, many things that don\'t work in Moz that used to work in NS are broken because they\'re not open standards, but proprietary ones.

This is a Feature, not a Bug. If Moz renders your page properly, chances are very good that any other standards-compliant browser will, too.
