Fred, you have a lot of time on your hands obviously. But the stats on
IE7 were interesting. I must say all my sites now use XHTML1.0 strict
code with CSS, I like the mark-up and all decent modern browsers
handle it fine, a part from IE7, it also works fine with
Screenreaders, such as Jaws. On IE5.5 and below, I would not bother
supporting them really as only a small percentage use it + it's CSS
support is not that grea.
