When designing and coding the template for this blog I didn’t have access to IE6 (thanks MS), but I finally got hold of Virtual PC and managed to sort out a number of issues that made it look worse than it is supposed to be!
Unfortunately there are still many people using IE6, at least 15% of visitors to this site and a lot more to other sites that have a less technical audience. Luckily that number is falling day-by-day and hopefully soon we can all stop wasting time making exceptions for IE6. I’ve found there are far fewer issues with IE7, hopefully it will stay that way in future versions.
I’d apologise to IE6 users but I think its about time they upgraded! :p
