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?

One thought on “IE5 more compliant than IE7? on ACID3?

  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!
