Interesting read. Whereas I had just chalked up the poor implementation of CSS due to timing, it kind of interested me to learn that it was due to the downing of a proposed standard, and the final solution was really poorly executed.

[The article linked is also of note for its "insane" use of "quotation marks" throughout the "document".]

I suspect English is not the native language of the author. There are case mismatches and other grammatic issues.

This really lights a bulb. Ah, so that's why! I'm almost more impressed -- it being such an obvious kludge -- that it works at all.
