Yep, sorry, it is now yes (thanks Henri for pointing it out in a
private mail), I'd obviously missed the announcement (which was a long
time ago) but previously I'd been requesting this feature in a bug
request, and it was rejected so I had assumed it had remained

FireFox is much nicer now you turn off its application/xhtml+xml
accept header, lachy's site renders just as fast in mozilla as IE now
(although mozilla's progressive image rendering gives a poor
impression to me, but I think others prefer it.)
