Odd. I've used IE 5 on the Mac, and haven't seen that. I know that I
implemented a workaround for Netscape 6 and current Mozilla's concerning
DOCTYPE's - view source on gamegrene.com to see that workaround. That may be
why IE isn't having the same problem you had...

Heh. Yeah, you won't - iCab doesn't support XHTML checking just yet, so
you'll always get that face.
