A lot of this really comes down to "Even with CSS, HTML is a markup
language, not a page description language."

I refuse to jump through hoops to support it. I find it darkly amusing
that, with the advent of www.windizupdate.com that lets me use Firefox
to update Windows, the *ONLY* thing I need IE for is Comcrap's online
bill pay ... because their crappy site is so badly written it ONLY works
in IE, and each time I've found a workaround that's enabled me to log in
*without* using IE, they've removed or disabled it shortly afterwards.
Unfortunately, for now, I'm stuck with comcrap for TV service, or I'd
just tell'em where they could shove it.
