This is a Sample of the Q Tag."
If you are viewing this page in Firefox or Mozilla; you will see two sets of quotes. Internet Explorer only shows the quotes that I added. The different renderings make the tag useless.
The fact that the W3 started to use HTML tags for punctuation makes me really sad. This is the ultimate violation of the rule of separating form from content. The following line uses the Q tag. You can see them in Firefox.

If you copy and paste the sentence into Notepad, the quotes magically disappear. The meaning of sentences change when you remove the punctuation.
I don't know who I dislike more. W3 for the stupid behavior of this tag or Microsoft for not implementing a really bad idea.
