Microsofts Marketing for IE9 and the truth

Have you checked the IE9 RC?

M$ states 99% compliance to HTML5 and 100% compliance to CSS3.
See Microsoft IE9 Blog


But this is the truth:
  • Worst compatibility points on http://html5test.com
  • NO text shadows
  • NO border-image
  • NO transitions
  • NO gradients
  • NO multiple-columns
  • ..and so on.
Conclusion: You must test the html5/CSS3 features of IE9 yourself. Never trust marketing bullshit.
