Safety Tips page

Safety Tips page content on MSIE 6.0 drops below left side column.  Looks like there is no content.  Many viewers will not know to scroll.   Other pages render well.

Re: Safety Tips page

MSIE 6 is a living fossil, and even many commercial entities have ceased to support it. I would not expect it to work on a volunteer-operated website - unless perhaps you buy Will some really good beer.

Moreover, I'd say that from a security standpoint, browsing with IE6 is like riding in the dark without any lights or reflective devices. Just don't do it. There are many better alternatives available.

As Brian stated IE6 is a POS.  I made a change in the page that may have fixed it but I do not have IE6 to check.

I will buy the beer and through in Baileys or whatever alcohol that spins Will's pedals.  Maybe you can buy my employer's managment and IT staff the things that motivate them to supply the latest, greatest electronics to employees.   Maybe even buy every employee an iPhone with a connection plan to use it.   I would like that too.    Bummer for me, my employer is a private business always worried about budgets.  No government tax $$ paying the bills.  So I must use the tools they supply when I travel for their work, like now, using MSIE 6.0.   Meanwhile, Will has fixed the issue of the Safety Tips dropping below the left side column in MSIE 6.0.

Re: Safety Tips page

IE7 was released in 2006, and was superseded by IE8 in March 2009. You don't need the latest and greatest - you just need something that's less than four years out of date! Are any of the IT folks at your employer aware that the recent "Google hack" was based on an IE exploit? As were most of the other less publicized hacks on numerous corporations and government entities over the past few years.

Firefox is free. IE7 is free. This isn't about budgets. Somebody is just _really_ lazy.

Okay, folks, this has gotten WAY off topic. Let's stop this thread  now.
