Ditto, although I did send Mark a few little niggles, otherwise the site looks great and is a definite improvement.

Some of us are stuck with IE6 at work (though I'm testing IE8 at last)  so please keep something to save our sanity in wet lunchtimes. Anyone left on IE6 now probably doesn't have the control over their system to upgrade so please don't keep nagging them on screen.

We've realised this is a real problem for some people. For that very reason, the full old version of the current (soon old) site will be available at a special URL (probably old.yachtsandyachting.com) for users of IE6 and IE7.

The site sometimes works on IE7 and sometimes doesn't, depending on the setup. IE6 stands no chance. Old versions of other browsers seem to be fine, but our stats show that most Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera users keep their browsers up-to-date so that is far less of a theoretical problem.

Anyone stuck on IE6 needs to gve their Co IT a good kick up the rear end!
 
I appreciate some company intranets have issues on other flavours of IE other than 6 but even the public sector are starting to get away from 6 now.
 
I seem to recall there have been no updates for IE6 for around 18 motnsh to 2 years......

Web developers throughout the world celebrated that news. The problem will still be there for corporate networks where the automatic updates are switched off and done manually throughout the system in a batch.

Well quite. IE6 users will be corporate (especially NHS and other government). No choice about updates. users of other browsers will likley be homne users who are more likley to just approve ay and all updates that get fed their way.
