I noticed on a short browser compatibility check that the entry from last night looks pretty bad in Internet Explorer. My initial response was to try to fix it, and see if I can get it prettier in IE. Then, another thought came to me. If this blog is mostly for my own purposes(and everyone else is free to look) then I see no reason to try to get my page pretty in IE. In fact, I am going to start implementing features that look fine in standards-compliant browsers, and that don't even work in IE, because I don't think it's a good idea to try to keep a website looking pretty for an old, substandard, krufty web client, like Microsoft Internet Explorer. There are plenty of cool things that mozilla can do, that are utterly impossible in IE, and I will bring those features to light, and put IE where it belongs: the back burner.
