Have the MSIE and Opera teams shared their data with the public about
what products are defective ? Otherwise discussing this aspect seems
moot, because then we have "Look, we found, well, stuff. Its common and
causes problems, believe us.".

Not to accuse anyone of anything -- disclosing such information would
just be professional and in the interest of a more rational debate --,
but I take statements from MS about compatibility with more than a grain
of salt.

Also, we could settle this. A sizable non-exhaustive list of problematic
sites could end this discussion soon. Just sayin'.
