Ed Welch replied to Brett Stoppel's discussion Supported Browsers in the group Page Coding
"We've been using supersleight and haven't had PNG transparency problems. IE6 users might see a white block in the background of a PNG but it goes away as the page loads. I too would like to see IE6 go away forever."

Brett Stoppel replied to Sara Langenberg's discussion In site redesign, OK to add designer after building wireframe? in the group Design
"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."

"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…"
