The following code will choke IE 10:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

        li { list-style-type : none; float: left; }
        li a { text-decoration: none;
             padding-left: 10px; border-left: 2px solid orange; margin-left: 10px;}

        <li><a href="page1.html">link 1</a></li>
        <li><a href="page2.html">link 2</a></li>
        <li><a href="page3.html"></a></li>

the text for the last link isn't in the HTML, so you can say it is not perfect HTML, but the separation bar "flys up" and it won't happen in Chrome, Firefox, Safari. If it is made into html 5 DOCTYPE or HTML 4.01 Strict DOCTYPE, then IE 10 works fine. But why will 4.01 Transitional choke IE 10 ?

This bug affects IE 10 and IE 9, but not IE 8.
