I read up until "web standards" and now I'm done. I suggest you go google Internet Explorer 7 and while you're at it I suggest you look for - "acid 2 firefox" and you might learn a little something about how "standard" firefox is.
I looked up Firefox's acid2 results and firefox did very well. I then looked up IE's results and they were much much worst than any of the other browsers. Infact IE7 did worst then IE6. I'm using IE7 beta right now for my testing and it's a joke.
