Description Oliver Schonrock 2005-05-03 05:22:07 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Would be helpful to know that quirks mode makes css classes case insensitive
(just like IE "non-standards compliant mode"). 

I am attaching a suggested doctor patch for the page with some appropriate
content. Just one more line..

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to the quirks page
2. observer that there is no info on css case sensitivity
3. get very confused about why you css is not working anymore when you change
doctype to standard compliant mode

Actual Results:  
much confusion and time wasting

Expected Results:  
Quirks page should have told me that gecko treats css as non-case sensitive in
quirks mode. Then we may have found our typo more quickly and saved much time.

I'd rather not have the list be "June 2001 plus one quirk added later".  Also,
the wording of your proposed change doesn't fit with the rest of the items; they
don't all start with "In quirks mode".

The article in question has been migrated into the MDC wiki here:

http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Mozilla_Quirks_Mode_Behavior

I'll check and make the suggested changes to the article if they haven't already been made, and if no one else gets to it first.

Any further changes should be made directly in the wiki here:
