unfortunately there are still a lot of internet surfers browsing on IE6 . when i code, i always try to make it look OK on IE6 too!

i hope, really hope that soon IE6 users will drop under 10%, then i will stop code for IE6 :)

What I do personally is that I use a separate stylesheet for IE 6 and if something doesn’t work, I just hide it or remove it. IE 6 users don’t get the full experience, but the website doesn’t look broken either. It might just have less transparent images or javascript animations than in other browsers.

I don’t think we should fully support IE 6 , but our templates should at least look OK in what is still one of the most widely used browsers. Otherwise people will assume it’s your fault, not their browser’s.

Here is how I instruct the reviewers:

If a template is fully functional in IE6 , but contains a few slight errors – no big deal. However, it’s just lazy not to compensate for transparency. It takes thirty seconds to do so.

If I had reviewed the MinimalTemplate, I would have instructed the author to fix the transparency issues before it was accepted. Hopefully, he or she will take care of that soon.

On the other hand, if a template completely breaks in IE6 , it MUST be rejected.

I agree that’s the best way to go!

Jeremy Keith wrote a really nice article on 24ways this December about just this. Have a look:
