What I have been doing for the last six months is presenting a 2 part
estimate. I sat down and figured out that it took me on average 20%
longer to hack for NN4. So in the estimate I separated the cost. If it
was going to cost $xxx without NN4 then it was going to cost $xxx plus
20%. Then you explain them what NN4 users get is a plain text version of
the site with images and working links. It has worked for me, so far. I
probably do 75% less NN4 hacking now.
