Yes, you can use another one, or bug M$ till it fixes it (ha ha ha).

Yes, I could. Like every webmaster could write CSS-based, standard friendly
code instead of broken table-based crap with proprietary IE-only
"extesions". Except my code _is_ standard friendly.

Well, as already said: that's your choice.

Your mistake is that my pages are not malformed. Enter the URL into the
HTML- and CSS- validator and see for yourself.

Yes, I am positively sure. It's not the color codes IE is stumbling upon.

I'm not a company. I'm just pissed about pages that are broken, invalid HTML
and/or CSS using IE-only, proprietary "extensions" that make my life harder.
