Dave, I read on the MSDN Library of VS 2005 and VS 2003, Q tag/element is supported. CMIIW, but I think the support for Q tag is still buggy, as I noted in my previous post.
The MSDN Library needs to be corrected about this issue, and it should show clearly that there is Q tag/element that is properly recognized and supported since IE 4.0 but to me it's also ambiguous with the intention of the original Q tag. The sample on MSDN Library is adding double quotes on the text to be quoted.
This is an excerpt of the MSDN Library:
The Q element is available in HTML and script as of Internet Explorer 4.0.
This element is an inline element.
This element requires a closing tag.
This example uses the Q element to set apart a quotation in text.
This object is defined in HTML 4.0 and is defined in World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Document Object Model (DOM) Level 1 .
The remarks is right, but it should describe the behavior and the look correctly. Then, according to your reply, the change on the future releases of IE should be noted also. There are also many things that need to be noted and should have enough warning to prevent more hacks, especially exploiting CSS hacks.
Again, this issue might not be a big issue, but for most web developers and designers like me, this could be a big stopper. What do you think
