in reply to Fun with PerlMonks and CSS

Can I give this a double ++? For a while I have felt that site developers should be more aggressive in moving towards current standards (like XHTML, CSS . . .) So someone with Navigator 3.0 or IE 2.0 can see the site? Tough cookies. There is the "web standards project" (or something like that, sorry, no link at present) that is suggesting people have their markup to tell people with broken browsers (including Netscape 4.7 and lower) that they need to update their browser.

I am running IE5.5 here, and the pink and blue themes would not display. The blue theme looked great.

    While I'm all for moving with the Standards, I think it seriously depends on the application IMHO. Would you want to force people to upgrade to purchase something from you? I think not. For some sites, it's fine to push the envelope, but if you are expecting someone to give you the priviledge of their cash (when their is probably hundreds of other sites selling the same thing in the same price range), I think you have to bend to the user.

    I'm not suggesting that you aim for IE 2 but sites should degrade nicely for users with at least 4.* browsers.
