Thanks for your comments, and especially for I've
bookmarked it for future use.

It looks perfect to me on my IE6 which is:


Looks to me like your IE6 is an older version which supports even less
than the latest updated, which mine is. Hey, you can support to every
minor and major release of every browser if you want (what a massive
job). I support only to the very latest of every browser. It's the
user's responsibility (you in this case) to keep his/her browser
updated. Like as if it's a difficult thing - MS lets you know that there
is an update available. You must have gone with that reported garbage
where some folks advised not to go with Service Pack 3 (sp3).

Well, at least here you have success.

Another way to look at it: Do you care to support a Firefox user that,
for one reason or another, did not update from 2.8.x (numbers picked out
of my hat) or whatever? Of course not. You only care about the support
of the latest Fx Version. Same for all other browsers.

N.B. You cannot rely on your IE6 that you are using! However, use tables
if you feel more comfortable, or whatever.
