how my new design works with old windows
Like anyone else who designs a template for a web site, IE is just plain evil. Specifically, any IE under version 8.
Out of the gate I knew that some parts of my site wouldn't work correctly in older Windows with older IEs. Fortunately however it doesn't make the site unreadable.
I have old versions of Windows loaded in virtual sessions for nostalgic reasons, but I also use them to test out new versions of my site. My test is pretty basic. If the site can be viewed in Windows 2000 using IE6 @ 1024x768 resolution, I know it will work anywhere even if it looks like ass.
For you old Windows nostalgia buffs out there, you'll probably get a kick out of this concerning what works, what sorta/kinda works and what doesn't work at all.
