Version 2.0 - Standard Edition or Professional Edition
the only differences between standard and professional editions are browser and doctype support.
Standard edition: IE, Mozilla/Firefox, quirks mode (no doctype)
Professional edition: IE, Moz/FF, Safari, Opera, quirks and standards-compliant modes (any doctype)
All other features (classes, functions, styles etc..) are exactly the same.
In my view you would only need professional edition if you have to support Safari and/or Opera.
... surely the doctype support issue is important as well for any work that is being done in standards compliant mode (i.e. with doctype switching)? Isn't most new work going the standards compliant way?
On the other hand if you have to provide Safari support - you have no choice as Safari only works in standards compliant mode. So this is probably the only case IMHO where standards compliant mode is useful (just don't forget that it forces you to drop IE5.5 which still has more users than Safari and Opera together).
