Hmm, unless you have a need to support old mac
users in particular, I wouldn't feel too guilty about
dropping support for Mac IE5 (OS9/OS X).  After
all, both Microsoft and Apple dropped support for
it long ago.


      P.S.  on a 'would be funny if it weren't
so painful' note - I had to use a provincial
government/ public service site the other day
that refused to let me use anything other than IE5+.

      When I complained, the person responsible
told me this policy was  'to ensure security' :)
I elected to transact my correspondence via
snail mail.
