I looked at a preview of one of my pages using IE 6 on windows 2k the other day… It was ugly. Basically everything to the right of the “leftside” div wrapped so you had to scroll down to see anything more than the school logo and left-side navigation.
Yeah, I’m all about dumping support for IE6 myself, but it’s hard to argue that to our University Relations department. If 6% of the population sees a busted website, then we’ll get calls and emails from every one of them saying our website’s busted, which makes us look bad.
I don’t want to argue to the Dr. Blanchard (President of GSW) that we allowed the site to go live like that because “Internet Explorer 6 is dead”. I’d at least like to give compatibility a fair shot so I have some ammo when I’m called on the carpet.
