"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. Yes, they can be different…"

Gary Thompson replied to Brett Stoppel's discussion Supported Browsers in the group Page Coding
"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…"
