As I start to add new features to Lottery Post (especially look & feel things), it is starting to make things look ugly in older versions of Netscape (4.x & earlier) and Microsoft IE (4.x & earlier).

Do you think I should continue to support those older browsers, or has everyone pretty much upgraded at this point?

Your responses and votes are much appreciated!

    When I got my computer five years ago, it had IE 4. Earlier this year, I added Netscape 6, but for the most part I still use IE 4.

        The only thing I see that's anything remotely ugly is diferent shades of blue.

                  If you decide to "upgrade", will there be a deadline for us?

                    Don't worry, the site will continue to work for you in old browsers - there's no deadline.  It's just that older browsers don't support some look & feel features correctly.

                    For example, if you open Lottery Post in Netscape 4.79 right now, you'll see boxes around each of the options in the blue menu bar at the top, because it doesn't support a style sheet command correctly.  The menu options still work fine, they just don't look as nice.  That's the kind of thing I'm talking about.

                      Wow, out of 1800 Lottery Post members, a total of 10 people (including myself) voted.  I thought that maybe the membership could give me a little more feedback on this topic, seeing how it will affect how I build future versions of the web site.  Do you all care?

                          If I have to, I'll use Netscape 6 more often.
