The majority browser has historically taken a path of its own.
It's not helped when browsers track and imitate each other's bugs (see e.g. http://www.quirksmode.org/blog/archives/2008/04/something_odd_h.html)
Good starting points are places like
QuirksMode -- http://www.quirksmode.org/blogs.shtml
A List Apart -- http://www.alistapart.com/
