Hi everybody,

Yeah, they forced me to back to IE6 age (read Ice age). I recommend this: www.dillerdesign.com/experiment/DD_belatedPNG/ , takes just some minutes, and works prefect.

To clarify for everyone, IE6 image transparency is required.

I think you should clarify that its not required if you’re not using any PNG ’s in the theme/template. Some people might get confused by this.

To re-clarify for everyone. Your templates are required to look and function the same in IE6 as they do in other major browsers (or at least reasonably close). This includes transparent PNG support.

Arrrr…This is so dumb.

Can we not just add a pop-up saying “Please update your browsers, you are using IE 6 ”???

Like shown in this nice Nettuts video tutorial about PNG fixes?? It was one of the solutions at least :P

Fixing things for IE 6 just steals time. =(

For personal sites, I absolutely encourage you to kick IE6 to the curb. However, this is a marketplace, and many of your purchasers will be angry when they find that your template doesn’t work on their company’s IE6 browsing computers.

This thread comes up time and time again. A few simple quirks are allowed, but other than that, you need to work on your IE6 compliance. It really isn’t that tough, guys. You’re professionals; I know you can do it. :)

I completely agree, these two paragraphs need to be stickied somewhere. :)
