Thanks, Rick -- I wasn't aware of that. I develop in Firefox and use XHTML strict anyway (there's really no need for transitional if you're using CSS properly), so I never noticed a problem in my occasional MSIE testing. The original blog posting that Frans showed us might have missed the point. I use strict not because I want to keep browsers from going into quirks mode -- as important as that is -- but to make sure that I don't use any deprecated HTML features that might cause problems with the next browser version.
