I'm not sure to understand here. What I was saying is that in IE6, IE7
quirks mode the backslash is always correctly interpreted (there is no
dependence on the property). So any hacks for IE5.x using that
'escape bug' do not work in IE6 quirks mode. That quirks mode is not a
full emulation of IE5.x (IE8 seems consistently to do the same.)

In IE7 the second line is green. Only the third and fifth are red.
