I absolutely love IE8. They're following most of the standards now. In Beta1, padding on list item

  • element doesn't work, I hope they're aware of the issue.

    Only somewhat. They still don’t support CSS 3 btw. and ofcourse yet again it’s their own JScript and not Javascript. There are few improvements in Jscript, but it still lacks many of the functions that are otherwise available in standard Javascript. However, that’s still laudable, considering it’s the same Microsoft behind this release. :)
