I don't really want to continue flogging this dead horse, but I just
saw Opera's press release on this episode:

"The irony of Microsoft's claim to standards-support is complete when you
check the MSN.com site for compliance with the XHTML standard. Anyone can go
to the W3C's standards validation service at http://validator.w3.org/ and
type in www.msn.com. The document returned demonstrates clearly that not a
single document on their site adheres to W3C specifications, and many of
their documents do not use XHTML at all, e.g. http://careers.msn.com/."
