    "..." is not correct english ending of a sentence btw. And using Capitals like "I Like To Make WebPages" is completely wrong. So dont throw stones in a glas-house.

    Me neither.

    I could, but this is not a deutsche Sprache forum.

    Look, "steve" (last I checked, not a German name), you come in guns blazing with a weirdly worded post and immediately start antagonizing everyone. We point out that maybe you should let go of an OS that was superceded in late 2006 and, if you really want to use it, there are alternative browsers that would satisfy your yearnings, and you point out that a website that starts with <!DOCTYPE html> is not XHTML (really? Wow, a winner is yuo!) and then proceed in calling everyone a troll (note: there are no trolls on internet forums. There is "trolling", that means leaving a bait behind you hoping that fishes follow it. Well, I guess you achieved that, at least)

    Seriously, you've done your piece of performance art, now it's time to gracefully back away and register again with a different nick and use some more elegant tactics to get your (potentially valid) point across.

    Auf Wiedersehen!

    I have not done a "piece of performance art" it started as a thread recommended by Microsoft i should poist here. But 90% of the replys is like trolling and telling me what an moron i am. 

    The meaning of this thread was to *wake up" the developers on IE8 to at least fix the Javascript issues that are present. Btw there was a spelling error on your rage reply "yuo" is actually spelled "you". I wont leave, i will follow this thread until i deside to stop following it. OK!

    Im not a computer you can tell "break;"  I will be the last poster in this thread, and thats a promise!

    the developers on IE8

    The developers on IE8 have all moved on to IE9 and then 10. Just like Microsoft as a whole has moved on from XP to Vista to Win7 and now Win8. XP is 12 years old. Expecting Microsoft to support it fully when it was superceeded 6 years ago and has been out of mainstream support for three years (it is currently in extended support, which means security updates only) is simply unreasonable. It makes no business sense for MS to do as you ask, and it's not going to happen no matter how loud you yell.

    There are alternative browsers you can use, which have been pointed out. You can also switch to a different OS, but as others have commented, that's likely to be more painful that switching to Windows 7 (and by the way, UAC is far less intrusive in Windows 7 than it was in Vista, and can be turned off if you really want, though I wouldn't recommend it).

    I don't understand where you expect this thread to go from here. You've gotten the only answer you're ever going to get for this question. Either you upgrade to Windows 7, use a different browser, or use a different OS. There will never be functionality updates to IE8 or any new version of IE for XP. Maybe that's not the answer you wanted to hear, but it's the truth, so repeating the question isn't going to change it.

    In addition, there are very few Microsoft employees who post in the Coffeehouse, and there are none from the IE team as far as I'm aware.

    I agree that this thread is totally pointless.

    XP is still supported untiil 2013

    Extended support, which means security updates only. Mainstream support ended in 2009.

    and still used by hundred of thousands of endcustumers that will not ├║pgrade to WIN7 and should be able to log in to banks internet services to pay their bills.

    They can, just possibly not using IE.

    You can write that a 100 times, but the answer will be the same a 100 times: there will be no further upgrades to IE on XP. I know it's not the answer you want to hear, but it's the only true answer.

    He hasn't been seen in the Coffeehouse for 3 years at least. I'm talking about right now, not any time in the past.

    There was no such limiting clause in your original statement. You're adding it so you can reassure yourself that you are correct when in fact you just didn't think about it too hard. But hey, whatever.

    It's true I forgot about Bruce. But that doesn't change the fact he's unlikely to answer the OP's question since he's not still active.
