Web Standards Geek Fun

The French version of the W3C page "Buy web standards compliant web sites" consistently crashes Apple's Safari browser. Do not try this with lots of tabs open, you have been warned :).

OK, Safari is a beta, yet way less crash prone than other non beta browsers, but it's ironic to this on this particular page. If it's not the standards then... pardon our French!

And not only that one, all the QA website at a point.

I think I have tracked down the feature which crashes Safari. I was really thinking to change the stylesheet... but I was wondering if it was the good solution.

Browsers, particulary, in development should not stop working on a valid CSS+HTML Web page.

We have sent a bug report to Dave Hyatt, but we received no answers.
