The Internet is rife with trolls who spread unscientific bs about healthcare, in order to scare people. Most of their "data" is fake and with no scientific grounds. I have relatives who willingly swallow the tripe sprouted by these individuals. It's unbelievable what these relatives do to themselves and their kids, because they trust the trolls more than the medical profession.

Alternative Medicine, I continue,
Has either not been proved to work,
Or been proved not to work.
Do you know what they call alternative medicine
That's been proved to work?

QuirksMode is when the various browsers render the same CSS HTML differently.
But it is more than that: It's related to what a browser should do if the behavior isn't defined or if the HTML would make the page not render (you still want users to see your page even if you mess it up).
It is also what happens when you get lucky and define something that hasn't been implemented properly in browsers (in relation to the W3C def) and the browser makes it work.
It is when you get unlucky when they browser finally "fixes" your problem and breaks your CSS.
Aside from browser differences and updates, I discovered a while back that the same page in the same browser worked on my box, but on a virtual machine it went to hell. All the input text types decided to huddle (one atop another) in the upper left corner.
The cure I found for this was absolute positioning.
