> IE 5 have as good CSS2 support as Mozilla and Opera, it is only that Moz/Op are more 'tuned'

In some ways, yes. At least for IE6 I could make this claim (though it would be a bit of a stretch); I don't know whether it holds for IE5, and I don't have it available to test. For example, IE's support for advanced text features (mostly CSS3) is superb.

Of course everything is an approximation. The question is how rough. In this case, it's so rough as to be worse than no approximation at all, in my opinion.
