It seems that despite all their best efforts, Microsoft is about to release a browser that doesn't meet the level of quality Microsoft purports to deliver. Surprising? Not really, but nevertheless painful and very disppointing. It looks like the days of IE hacks will not be banished.
An example - the Italic Float Bug:
Try floating an element whose parent has its font-style set to italic. IE7 will mysteriously apply a right-margin equal to the width of the parent element. Great.
