sniffing sees most browsers render the page in "Quirks" or "Bugwards
compatible" mode rather than "strict" mode. In the interests of making
wikipedia accessible, I think it would be better to force strict mode -
then editors would be more likely to notice markup errors which affect the
rendering on browsers which do not correct for bad markup.
Why don't we just let the people using such browsers send us bug reports?
