As a Web Designer/ Software Developer, IE6 is a browser that is difficult to avoid if you have a web site where the world is your audience. There are so many non-compliance issues with IE6 that it is difficult to maintain a comprehensive list of known problems. The most annoying problem with IE6 is the non-support of PNG24 images.
In any event, I saw an article in CNN this morning where web designers are starting a movement to get rid of IE6. I would not expect the demise of IE6 anytime soon, however this can only be good news.
The problems with IE6 can become so overwhelming that I wrote a special ASP.NET custom control for one project that conditionally injects special HTML code where appropriate for IE6. It works sort of like this...
1: <slcms:InjectBrowserHtml runat="server">
3: <img src="/Themes/Images/ShipMyLuggage/Your-ticket-to-ease.png"
4: alt="Your ticket to ease of convenience" />
7: <div style="filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(sizingMethod='scale',
9: width: 478px;
10: height: 149px;">
And of course, all over the web are articles about how to fix the most noticeable IE6 problems....such as 10 Fixes That Solve IE6 Problems...
IE6 ?....Good riddance...
