Supporting Web Standards Development with SuperPreview

Internet Explorer 8 is an important release because it reconfirms Microsoft’s commitment to interoperability and renewed emphasis on Web Standards. My team—which develops the authoring tool, Expression Web—is also pretty emphatic about Web Standards. We’re in the process of doing significant tooling (and retooling) so we can support existing and emerging specifications, reliably.

"reconfirms Microsoft’s commitment to interoperability and renewed emphasis on Web Standards".

@Steve Surely you jest?

Translation: Microsoft has actively sought to subvert standards and interoperability for many years. Because we have caused so many problems and because we continue to hold back progress (CSS 3?) have this tool so that you can write hacky, difficult to maintain code to make things work in the lowest common denominator.

I will believe Microsoft when they start to tell web page developers to write in web stands code instead of IE only code (also know as Microsoft Windows only code). Only saying it in the compatibility list for IE 8 does not count. Who is tired of having to test for old IE 6 that breaks a page only in IE 6 and other modern browsers like Opera.
