Why not just code to the standard instead of to a browser, do your
testing in an ACID compliant browser like Konqueror (instead of a
browser that can't render to the standard), and then call it good? If
it looks good there, it'll look just as good in any browser that
actually complies with the standard or does a reasonably good job
