I think it also bears saying that you can design sites that degrade 
well in older browsers - I have a personal site (littleblueeasy.com, 
find the transformation log if you want to see. Be forewarned, 
however - topless pics of me!) that I think looks really good in 
newer browsers. In older browsers (or just turn off CSS to see the 
degraded version), it still works great, even though it's a lot 

(BTW, if anyone who does visit has problems, please let me know so I 
can fix them!)

Developing a site that looks how you want it in new browsers and 
degrades well requires some forethought about the arrangement of 
divs, etc. Often you prioritize information on the page: what's most 
important, for example...

Designing to standards and then kicking out the people who don't 
support standards misses the POINT of designing to standards. A good 
standards-compliant site should work in almost all browsers, even if 
it doesn't LOOK perfect in some of them! :)
