A Dramatic Reversal

Microsoft's plan with IE8 was to make it use IE7's less-correct rendering by default, unless developers asked for "IE8 mode" explicitly. This was bad. They have now reversed their position. Money quote:

Now, IE8 will show pages requesting “Standards” mode in IE8’s Standards mode. Developers who want their pages shown using IE8’s “IE7 Standards mode” will need to request that explicitly
