IE5 more compliant than IE7? on ACID3?

Steve Noonan maintains a page where he collects and publishes results for various browsers tested against the newly released ACID3 Standards. Unsurprisingly no browser currently scores 100%, and it’s not surprising to me that Internet Explorer is way down the bottom of the list for compliance … but how the hell did IE5 score more than IE6 and IE7?

  1. Perhaps because Acid3 is checking for IE6 and IE7-specific bugs, and IE5.5 didn’t have those bugs? Why create a new suite aimed at a really old browser? I’m minded to dig out IE 5.2.3 for OS X and give that a bash!
