Internet Explorer 6, Thou Art My Enemy

Submitted by C B Wright on

Internet Explorer version 6 is without a doubt a blight upon the Internet.

A pestilence, a putrescence, a profligate bastard-child of a lumbering giant that does not deserve the amount of time and effort I spend on trying to make it look right. A stellar example of base perfidy, it was designed to do nothing less than to break the World Wide Web.

This site looks pretty darn good in Firefox, Opera, and Konqueror -- haven't been able to test it on the OSX browser yet -- and even IE7 renders it reasonably well. But IE 6! It keeps screwing up every part of my site.

At this point I don't know how to fix it, other than to find people who know what they're doing and get them to fix it for me.

Yep. This is definitely screwed up.

IE seems quite enamored with whitespace...

It almost looks presentable.
