I reply to about 300 tickets and threads per day in the several support systems I work in, and I get IE7 complaints about 3-5 times per week. IE6 never, yay :)

Cheers!

I dropped IE8 earlier this year for public/commercial themes. I simply refuse to test against three versions of IE. I make my policy to only test against the latest two versions of IE pretty clear, so I don’t have much trouble with this.

Now, for client work, they get whatever they want to pay for. I’ll do IE5 if they feel like it’s worth the extra dev hours they’d have to pay me for.

And how are you going to determine how many hours it takes to fix it up? I mean, IE5 has been dead for eons now, even google searches will not yield any results :evil:

I believe greenshady was just using it as a hypothetical situation only ;)

But +1 to everything he said for sure.

We code for IE8+ in all our work and go backwards if clients want this specifically.

As for the original question – haven’t been asked about IE6 / IE7 for marketplace themes in probably 6 month.
