While this is in itself very good news, there is a worrying phrase in the announcement. IE8 passes Acid2 test *in IE8 Standards mode*. This _may_ mean there is another mode that doesn't render Acid2 correctly and must be some sort of compatibility mode.
I appreciate the need for such mode in MSIE, but only as long as it is not set as the default upon release of MSIE8.

I read that the new set of fonts for Longhorn will contain a fixed font called Consolas. I don't know if it will be a full family (Regular, Bold, Italic, Bold Italic) or a single font as Lucida Console is now. The problem is that with a single font you cannot
really use it with Visual Studio's syntax highlighting when bold face is used for keywords. A lack of proper Bold variation of the font you use breaks source code column alignment. To see what I mean, try using VS with Courier New (nice columns) and Lucida
Console (ugly, columns broken).
