Acid2, Acid3, and the power of default

Two years ago, the Acid2 test was announced in this column. Acid2 is a complex Web browser test page that shows a smiley face when rendered correctly.

The test, published by the Web Standards Project, has been a tremendous success in weeding out browser bugs that stop Web designers from reaching pixel perfection in their pages. Safari and Opera ship Acid2-compliant versions, and the upcoming Firefox 3 will also pass the test.... Front Page

On a somewhat related vein, Microsoft have worked with WaSP (The Web Standards Group) to come up with a way to implement non-standard standard behavior in a standard non-standard way.

I'm going to to have to write an FP Editorial about this. It's just insane.
