Can I pop in here and take issue with that? He didn't ask how it looked
in NN4, he asked if it crashed NN4, and that is a very valid concern.
One of the big reasons we use CSS is to improve accessibility, but if we
write off users of old browsers completely, are we really being
accessible? I'm not advocating spending hours trying to make sites look
great in NN4, but every page you make should be at least useable to as
many users as possible. Especially when it is so easy to make your page
useable in NN4 -- just use @ import or other methods of hiding the styling.
To answer Eric's question, it does not crash NN4.8 on Win, but it is not
very useable. The main text is pushed over to the left, overlapping the
links, and pushed up under the header image as well. The links in the
bottom bar all overlap each other as well. The easiest option to fix
this is to just serve NN4 a very simplified stylesheet with the
positioning stripped out, or hide the stylesheets altogether using @
import. Either way, you at least insure your site is useable.
