    It's not like it's a new situation. There hasn't been an IE for Mac since 2003 and it didn't share a rendering engine with IE for Windows. So development testing for Mac users against IE9 is the same as it was against IE8, IE7, IE6... either use a separate PC, run Windows in a VM, or use a snapshot/VNC service like Browsercam.

    My bad. I thought there were more recent Mac builds of IE since every Mac I've used (2004-2008) had IE installed (if you can tell I don't own a Mac myself). I guess it must have been a relic more than anything else.

    While that is true it's worth pointing out Dan that Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac (and Office 2004 - it's predecessor) USES the Tasman rendering engine (yes the EXACT same rendering engine that IE for Mac used!) in it's Entourage and all other Mac Office version products - Therefore there's a very real possibility that the numbers of Tasman users (even if it's just in email) is high enough to warrant recognition.

    I am perplexed that it hasn't been in since IE7, especially given that their ASP.NET platform basically requires it because its aspx pages are XML documents containing a hybrid of HTML elements and server controls.

    Cheers,
