Microsoft to add a "super standards" mode to IE 8

added by Michael on 22 Jan 2008

From ZDNet:

Microsoft is planning to add a new, opt-in "super standards" mode to Internet Explorer (IE) 8 - a move of which some developers are critical.

IE Platform Architect Chris Wilson shared the details of how Microsoft plans to provide the greater standards compatibility, which it has promised for its next browser release via a January 21 posting to the IE Team Blog.

Wilson said Microsoft is planning to offer developers three modes in IE 8: the existing quirks mode, which will be compatible with current IE pages and applications; a "standards" mode, which will be the same as what's offered by IE 7 and "compatible with current content"; and a third, super standards mode that will require the insertion of a element to guarantee the highest level of standards compatibility.
