Internet Explorer – A Link is not a Link

Someone said that the browser wars are over, well I am not sure of that, they will only be over when Internet Explorer from the great and mighty Microsoft (M$FT) as its called by open source advocates starts following standards and its own rules all the time.

Having an HTML anchor tag () without an href attribute, means that certain behaviors like the hover effects are not recognized by IE 7, 8, whether in quirks mode (using the HTML 4 Transitional DOCTYPE) or standards compliant mode (HTML 4 Strict DOCTYPE).

The behavior between IE 6, 7, 8 and soon to be released 9 is a nightmare to deal with. M$FT why do u treat us so?
