until (and this has happened) they open it in NN3 or on WebTV...  
believe it or not, that doesn't make the client wrong when they 
complain, it makes them uninformed -- which places you at fault for 
not informing them...

a CSS layout falls apart in those browsers (obviously)... *not* 
telling your clients how the site will look in x browsers is a 
disservice... not managing their expectations is a disservice...  not 
telling them your plan of attack is, well, a disservice...

build how you will, but don't pull that kind of crap on a client...  one 
of these days you'll get a savvy client or an extremely dumb one... 
both are prone to litigation, too... don't withhold information...
