RE: [css-d] CSS in IE6/PC

|  (I'm being polite today) twice on this list I thought I'd

|  IE/PC's CSS
|  support between 5.5 & 6.0. While my I have never tried

|  out it really seems that except for fixing the box model in 
|  "standards mode"
|  absolutely nothing has change. 


No, there were a few more welcome changes as pointed out in the
reference given by others. IE6 also fixed x number of bugs in 
IE5.5 (notably the "naked serif" travesty) while introducing 
x number of bugs of its own. 

From the developer's point of view, one convenience was 
eliminated: the "compatibility mode" that allowed us to 
easily view the previous IE version on the same machine.

To compensate, they gave us "by demand of our clients" the
ellipsis:
text-overflow : ellipsis; 
a more useless addition I could not imagine. You have to
see it in IE6 to appreciate its uselessness:
