Re Bug 991, it can be argued that Mozilla's current (non)support is actually correct. By the specs, it's invalid to put block-level elements within character-level ones. As something of a "purist" myself, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the "presentationalist" pages created with invalid HTML by designers who arrogantly say "Well, the browsers support it, so I don't care what the standards say!" start breaking in a new browser that supports the standards better. If designers have to fix all their pages, it might teach them to follow the specs better.

As for what "bugs" I'd like to see addressed, my votes are for:

#1061, #16206: Better support for <Q> element, with "curly quotes" and smart treatment of nested quotes.

#2800: Smart use of LINK elements.

(These aren't really "bugs", per se, but they *are* important areas of standards compliance that are noted in "Bugzilla".)
