Mozilla's New 'Almost Standards' Rendering Mode

Tuesday July 9th, 2002 has an article about Mozilla's new 'almost standards' mode. This new rendering mode joins the existing standards compliance and quirks modes and should mean that more pages work correctly in Mozilla. The article describes the differences between 'almost standards' and standards compliance mode and lists the DOCTYPEs that trigger the new rendering method.

Thanks to Blogzilla for the link.

Agreed, except for one thing. They could make it work fine with IE's standards more with very little effort. Then it would work with any other browser's standards mode as well (for all browsers that have such a concept). Then they could stop worrying about the fact that more than one browser exists.
