Well, actually IE 5.2 came loaded when my OSX 10.2.8 Mac arrived on my
desk. I have Firefox and Safari, but still find some larger sites will
only work in IE... so I find it very useful sometimes to use IE 5.2.
I don't think I'd advise anyone not to code for a browser, after all,
it's all good practice and you learn along the way. IE 5.2 is the
latest and last version that MS will make for the Mac, therefore people
should at least design a site that will be workable in IE 5.2.
If you're using CSS to make your sites accessible to people with
disabilities, then why shouldn't you bear in mind that some older (and
younger) people won't change their computers or browsers - shouldn't
your sites be 'accessible' to them as well, or is website
'accessibility' only applied to certain minorities?
But I guess this is off topic, so I'll end it there.
