"We did just that. Though we treat our wireframes as a guide and not as a set in stone layout. It can save some money, but it really helps the group responsible for the web site to discuss what content is needed before the design starts."
"This thing about CSS is, that once you have found a way to deal with a particular browser fault, like MSIE6 and min-width or min-height, you have that solution in your toolbox. You only have to solve the problem once.

"Sure it is... They'll upgrade eventually. In a specific and very non-pc way, this is a real chicken and egg thing. Do we develop for every browser that's out there (and so every new one and revision that appears) or do we stick with core…"
