Microsoft, Firefox and Bad (X)HTML

So Microsoft stuffed up their redirect of real web browsers at one point from their preview page (you’ll need to set your browser to lie and say it’s IE 6 on XP to avoid the now-working redirect to the standard MS home page).

I think it’s a device to try and hide the fact that it’s the usual MS generated broken markup, the W3C validator spat out 113 errors and 13 info messages and their CSS doesn’t fare much better!

They’ve got their work cut out for them if they want to avoid making it a significant regression on the results for the current home page which has only 2 HTML errors (though still with a considerable number of CSS bugs).
