Throughout this document, the document mode appears first followed by the browser version in parentheses. Only those document modes and versions of Internet Explorer for which there is a variation note will be listed. If the document mode is not listed, conformance to the specification can be assumed.

Note   "Standards mode" in Internet Explorer 7 and "IE7 mode" in Internet Explorer 8 refer to the same document mode. "IE7 mode" is the preferred way of referring to this document mode across all versions of the browser.

Throughout this document, Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 3.0 is referred to as MSXML3 and Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.0 is referred to as MSXML6.
