I totally agree, I think that a recognised set of browser support standards would be very useful.

As you pointed out, Yahoo set the pace or at least popularised the idea of graded browser support (gbs), I think the BBC’s Browser Support Standards Work Group have taken it further with clearer definitions of those levels of support:

Browser Support Standards v3.3

I think having a common set of support level definitions would help manage client/stake-holder expectations.

Andy Clarke has written some excellent posts recently on browser support and related issues with client/stakeholder expectations, these being very good:

Time to stop showing clients static design visuals

Five CSS design browser differences I can live with

Maybe along with ACID3, a standard support definition could be hosted on Wasp.

Nice post Jeremy.
