web standards in IE7

It's an improvement on IE6, but what I want to know is, what about supporting pseudo-classes for elements other than the a tag? e.g. Firefox supports td:hover as well as a:hover, but IE doesn't, and you have to use Javascript to work around this. I would also like to see the DOM implemented correctly, as I was trying to do some DHTML and it just didn't work in IE because of the incorrect DOM implementation.

In the IEBlog post you link to, they explicitly mention supporting :hover on all elements in beta2.

Win/IE6's DOM implementation is actually pretty good. In terms of Core, HTML and CSS DOM implementation it does about as well as Mozilla 1.75, but falls down on its implementation of the Event specification. In fact, quirksmode.org rates IE6's DHTML implementation as "Excellent". I don't know what you were trying to do :)

Whoops, I obviously didn't read it properly.

I was trying to append and insert new elements to a form after the user had clicked a button - apparently the problem I was having was due to the DOM not being implemented correctly in IE6.
