Standards-compliant mode not supported
So the conclusion is - standards-compliant mode is not supported and probably will not be.
what about this solution:
My company is considering purchasing a site license, but our requirement is XHTML Strict support.
Just curious, are you really prepared using 'content-box' model for your application? Imagine the following scenario: you have to set the column size to 200px wide and your column header template has 2px border with 5px padding while the cells are 1px right border only and 3px padding. Frankly I am having difficulty now to calculate what the width setting should be and if I really want to specify it separately for each cell depending on the cell inner content...
How would you approach this? One solution I can think of is to replace each DIV with two - outer DIV with no border and no padding just for setting the size and another inner DIV for border and padding. Is there any better solution? I am looking for any advice here.
We make two DIVs - outer DIV with no borders, margin an padding, only size, WHERE NECESSARY.
As IE in standards mode doesn't support 'border-box', we plan using maybe something like IE7 Hack or that box-sizing behaviour that I mentioned before.
Our main goal is XHTML Strict compliance.
Agreed, and here is how one counters such an impedements.
Promote and use other browsers, which are not proprietarily supported and support actual STANDARDS. Just this past year Firefox is gaining more ground on IE than ever before. Once IE is even with Firefox, M$ will have to re-evaluate their stand and support these standards to exist in a world where standards, should be forced, and not be implied so loosely. Take a look at IE 7, it is a Firefox knock off if I have ever seen one. And they are going to support native XMLHttpRequest and depreciate the ActiveX equivalent. That tells you something right there. They know they are up a creek with one paddle. They can't afford to lose the only paddle they have left.
