IE8 got exposed?
I already posted about features provided by IE8 but the bubble got burst very soon when Jon Davis found out something unusual.
Jon found out IE8 is xHTML compliance in rendering mode only rather changing the DOM API.
XHTML compliance exists in parsing and rendering only. Microsoft is still using an internal IE-HTML DOM that is not XHTML-compliant, even in XHTML documents. All you have to do prove this out is, in script, alert(document.documentElement.outerHTML);
ehhe pretty Interesting but not surprising. AJAXian has covered it more.
