It's a great news. It will force websites to stop using Microsoft specific
features and caveats, and adopt the real standards.
I hope Apple will do a great job with Safari to support these standards
without necessarily emulating the non-standard IE "features".
It will also give some place to Mozilla with its strong involvement in
respecting standards, even if it does not work exactly like IE.
If web sites start using the real standards, people will upgrade for
a more standard browser, and Microsoft will consider correcting
its IE to follow the evolution of websites, removing the unnecessary
features that Microsoft wants to promote, such as proprietary web
fonts for CSS2, or the Office "smart links".
