Why is Internet Explorer such crap?


Just why is Internet Explorer such a pile of crap? I design a layout which is perfectly standards compliant and valid CSS and it looks great in Mozilla (or at least, it looks like what I expected). In IE, however, elements are in the wrong place. We're not talking a few pixels out, which can be explained by the wrong box-model it uses. I'm talking major elements which were positioned absolutely are off the page or on top of another element.

For an example, look at Vicky's Sample Page in any browser.
