I was refiniing my css abilities a little, and trying to learn more techniques, and I ran across something that I have heard of a few time's, but have never been clear on.  At this point, I don't want to know so much as what it is, because I primarily know that already, but more of what's it for.  Is there ever a logical or good reason to use quirks mode, whether temporarily or permanently, or is it useless.

I'm not sure why you would really want to even consider doing this.  By offering up a "quirks-mode" page, you're removing the header information.  That's moving backwards.  I honestly feel that we're to the point now that I'd guess less than 3-5% of people using the web are using a browser that doesn't support at least some CSS. 

And I think those people would be running into issues elsewhere as well and realize it's the fact that they're running ancient software and need to upgrade.

Ok that's what I was wondering, so there really is no point in getting into that other than just basic knowledge, thanks.
