One problem is that Firefox does not fix HTML errors in the "right"
way (by "right" way, I mean: not expected by the web site developers),
and when I look at a badly-written site with Firefox, it's not obvious
that there's something wrong, or the cause of a problem can be
difficult to track (because the developer uses a different browser and
may not see the problem). At least, with XHTML-style failure, one can
clearly see that there's a problem and one can fix it.
