what should be done and what has to be done. In the same way, PNG is
not as widely and well-supported as it should be, at least in IE.

Sort of true but things will never change if everyone thinks and acts
this way. Only if you web-designers start to write spec-compliant
pages and use the proper formats, only then will the browsers be fixed
to render these pages correctly.

Go a step further. When you identify a browser that does not support current standards (typically, IE), let the user know, either with a popup or such. How many times have you seen similar messages telling you, you MUST use IE for a particular website?
