    pages in question. this site also uses lbi files

    color: #000000;

    margin: 0px;
    }
    p {
    font: 10pt/16pt georgia;
    margin-top: 0px;
    text-align: justify;
    }
    h3 {
    font: bold normal 12pt arial;
    letter-spacing: 1px;
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    color: #000000;
    }
    a:link {
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #0000CC;
    }
    a:visited {
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #CC3333;
    }
    a:hover, a:active {
    text-decoration: underline;
    color: #CC3333;
    }
    img {float: left;
    margin-right: 30px;}

    ..style3 {font-size: 24pt}

    and now you expect me to waste my time reconstructing your pages instead
    of simply supplying a URL.

    goodbye

    What percentage of your users are accessing the site with IE5?
    I've seen as low as 7% and as high as 13%. Yours could be even lower or even
    higher. If you're not getting many visits from IE5, don't make your decision
    to support IE5 based on only a handful of people

    Anything this big should be uploaded and a URL should be posted.

    My general rule-of-thumb - I don't support any version of a browser before
    the most recent, if it is more than 5 years old.

    IE5 is ancient. Get over it. Get it running on IE6, you're OK.

    If I had a URL I'd look at it in other more modern browsers too, but there
    ain't one, and I'm not going through the trouble of making a web page out
    of your raw code.

    Not to mention that we have *none* of the images :)

    It is important to note that IE5.5 implements CSS much better than IE5.01,
    and that approximately the same number of people use IE5.01 as use IE5.5.
    You really should consider IE5 to be TWO different versions, and test with
    both.

    IE5 is still used by about 10% of users. If you don't support them, you
    lose about 10% of your visitors.

    So please, don't support your IE5 visitors: send them on to my clients'
    sites.
