As said previously, it's not the measurement units themselves it's
inconsistency across the board and I believe it's to do with the
compatibility mode in internet explorer.
Basically what microsoft have done is sacrifice basic standards for the sake
of running proprietary scripts and extensions.
This in no way advances the cause of web standards at all and sets the clock
There was a time when many authors praised microsoft for their powerful
implementations, often incomplete but way ahead of the pack in terms of
providing the basics but now it seems they are falling behind as others'
have implemented things more cautiously microsoft have to please a
non-discerning constituency that don't care about the future.
