I wish.  It fixes some and leaves others.

Some did.  I wrote sites that didn't use hacks, and every one of them I've
tested works in IE7.

Jerry's site is fine in Firefox and IE6.  I am curious -- are you using the
first beta or the 2nd beta?  The first beta of IE7 was a mess. Note that
MSFT cleverly named the second beta with the same name as the first beta.  I
am surprised that you had problems with Jerry's site because it is an XHTML
1.0 strict site that validates, and thus far I have not found one that had a
problem in IE7 beta #2.
