Web standards

I love Speedy Snail's Web Standards Fairy-Tale. However, deciphering the moral of the story is a little difficult, and I'm not sure I agree with it anyway. I'm actually a little more in agreement with the Mindset Upgrade Campaign which the fairy tale is a response to.

But I think my main motivation in my approach to web technologies is this: Web browsers go against the standards at their own risk. I will not, for my personal site, work around bugs in browsers. If that means that people have to upgrade their browsers -- or downgrade them -- then so be it.
