IE7 to support standards?

According to Eric Meyer, it seems that there is hope that Internet Explorer 7 may have improved standards support. He’s got a list of “Top 10 CSS Fixes” that should be made. I would definitely like to add “proper support for PNG transparency” to the list. It’s not CSS-specific, but it is a browser bug that requires many site designs to implement IE-specific work-arounds.

And of course, there are many other bugs listed at the css-discuss wiki and Position is Everything that should be fixed: the “guillotine bug”, “peekaboo bug”, and the “creeping text bug” are ones that have bitten me on more than one occassion.

    My site’s stats usually show Firefox beating MSIE out of first place in browser share. I wish the same were true for the entire web!
