Ok. And with that page there is no need to use the IE8 "change mode"
of the "developer tools" (which may introduce further complications),
you already have all the three rendering simultaneously displayed.

No, I don't think so. IE6 and IE7 quirks mode render those three bars
exactly as IE8 quirks mode (last two shorter).
You cannot use that page to see how IE6-7 render those bars in quirks
mode (the page and the included iframes do not put IE6-7 in quirks
mode). You need to modify one of those iframe (changing the doctype)
if you like to see how IE6-7 quirks render those bars. And I believe
they render exactly as IE8 quirks.
