    blasphemous or revolutionary ?

    i just visited photoMatt and wordpress.org in a vmware session I have set up with Win2000/i.e. 5.0 and apparently Matt has kissed off the old i.e. people.

    the site looks all crazy and unruly, cause i.e. can't digest his css.

    what do you guys think about this ?

    funny thing is, after a long hiatus from web. dev., i installed moveabletype about 3 months ago and it's default install looked all crazy (i still had i.e. 5.5 back then). so i did all my templates in tables old-skool style.

    now i have my site all set up smartly in css and i feel like a choo choo Charlie and a dandy Warhol, but apparently i too am kissing off the old i.e. stalwarts.

    is this blasphemous or revolutionary ?

    please somebody chime in with some words of wisdom.

    here is my site ... nothing here of importance yet ...
    don't tell anybody:

    It all depends on your audience. If most of your visitors are tech savvy, then you can expect them to have modern browsers. If you are making an e-store for Pap'n'mum you'd better support IE5 still...

    Hi E-head,

    there was a discussion going on on http://www.simplebits.com/notebook/2004/12/17/ie5.html about this issue. Maybe Matt reads this blog too.
