Yes, I remember the painful decision to step away from standards
everywhere with this client. It's a kludge at this point. I agree.
This layout is definitely killing some end user experiences.
Client-insistence is strong in favor for the too dark, line reading
width too long. Only IE 6 and above, if that. No screen readers...
100% fluid width not consistent.
No 800px, not even 1024! I butchered a full working standards-template
to get it to this current beauty.
Yes IE jumps... Barely getting just FF & IE addressed. Statistics show
50-50% these 2, with 1% other browser use likely generated from
testing, 1% IE 5 not past 2001.
Definitely at the "work somewhat" stage.
I've now decided to do a major pruning and just go back to a
only-for-FF story board with header-footer, otherwise empty
body/wrapper. I'll post if success. Yes weird on the earlier <del>
comment, it was a early AM hack for IE, it has to go anyway for even a
minimal degrade to work at this point.
