So, I'm googling on "switching style sheets" and get a ref to a page:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/75ydzzy6
which turns out to be MS Dev Network (never been there before).
This gives me my first-ever experience with a Safari (2.01) alert to a JavaScript error alert (value undefined - not an object).
Plus what I see is a very wacked layout problem.
Cranking up IE/Mac, I discover that the layout is supposed to be a FRAMED page (MS using cutting edge technology). But in Safari I was not even able to see that there were supposed to be frames (no scroll bars... just text from one frame overwriting another.

Anyone tell me what's going on? Is this OLD javascript that MS is using? or a bug in how Safari renders js?

I hear refs to Safari still not up to speed with some JS? Is that true...

Is it a bug in Safari, or Microsoft not writing standard code? Hmm...without reading through the code, I'll take one guess...

Or let's just check the official source:

Very cool to be able to run ANY site through the validator. Nice tip, long overdue in my repertoire.

It said there were a mere SIXTY errors on the page.
