    Standard or not. A good browser's purpose isn't to be to proud to display non-standard stuff, rather it's there to display as much and as accurately as it possibly can.

    "Looks like crap"... ever heard of themes?

    And there is always Opera.
    Themes? I've heard that word used in several different ways. Which definition of theme are you referring to?
    A lot of pages I look at in other browsers have some of their fonts all messed up.
    I'm not saying I like everything about IE; but for me, I like more of its features than other browsers that I've seen.

    Yes, I agree this is a browser's purpose.

    Themes skin and change the look of your browser, of course.
    I have failed to see messed up fonts on pages, but some pages are maligned and a few do not work. But the majority does work.
    For those that doesn't, the trusty IE tab takes care of the work.

    That's what I thought he was talking about, but it has nothing to do with the pages looking like crap. Skins just make the browser window look like crap.

    I dunno, for Vista users I bet skins are a saver!
