At the moment I'm not sure of anything, but isn't this the intended
This trigger "quirks mode", or more precisely "IE7 quirks mode" (which is
nearly identical to "IE6 quirks mode".)
And in IE7 (and IE6) quirks mode, they never tried to emulate old parsing
bugs of IE5.x, just the box model and other rendering things.
So even if this is called "IE5", they simply wanted to emulate "IE7 quirks
mode". And this is what we see.
Of course, I might be completely wrong :-)
