5,000 people a week is still a large amount of people, If you code to
standards then there aren't a great deal of things that go horribly
wrong in IE 5 mac - unless your doing bleeding edge CSS, most of the
problems are with floats requiring widths, or IE pc fixes not being
hidden form the mac.

I still test in IE 5 pc as well - i think that is unsupported by MS (i
could be wrong).
