FF, IE8 work, then comes the pain

Man I really can’t stop liking the good folks at Microsoft for Internet Explorers. Trying to fix a layout for modern browsers (FF, IE8) is simple, IE8 just needs an extra meta tag so it doesn’t behave like the older versions.

IE7 seems to have interesting behavior but it was easily fixed. One more thing to do is fixing the centering with (drumroll) IE6.

Why in hell am I concerned about IE6? Looking at the charts from Google Analytics it tells me that of all IE users

  • 42% use IE8
  • 32% use IE7
  • 25% use IE6

Though, those IE6 could just be random internauts but even for them I’d like to provide at least some kind of layout. Luckily IE users represent only about 32% of all views. Should be less though.

EDIT: It’s text-align: center; not middle. Helps a lot with IE6 not being capable of margin: 0 auto;
