Have a look on the google, yahoo, msn, none of them follow internet standard...e.g.

unquoted attributes
never use type="text/javascript"

poor...

That observation is quite moot, don't you think?

I would say that we can all agree that PC security is very important, as is performance and usability. Yet, there is Windows ...

Just because the big guys don't do certain things doesn't mean it is all of a sudden useless or something we can just brush off as pointless fluff. There are plenty of other big players that do what's right.

i really don't understand why people are lazy to quota an attributes, use type for javascript...seems silly.

Yes, it does. But, let us not forget that many many still use old school editors which churn out broken markup. Yet others use old "templates" with outdated markup, and never think to updated. And then, for others saving those extra two bytes per page view become very very important.
