IE8 Passes the Acid2 Test

I downloaded the Beta 1 of Internet Explorer 8 from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/ie8/default.mspx and I was pleasantly surprised that it passes successfully the hard Acid2 test that tests for web standard compliance. It seems that IE8 has a brand new render engine, although the beta keeps an "Emulate IE7" button, just in case.
