Which is exactly why we have to *show* them that their browser is out of
date and *encourage* them to upgrade it somehow.

If we continue to support older browsers by painstakingly recreating and
recoding our designs, there's a significant danger that the paying
client will gravitate towards the cheaper (because she's standards
compliant) designer.

Educating clients on cross browser compatibility will eventually sound
like a *magic* way to increase the fee - how long will they stand for

Act NOW!

Educate, Inform, and standardise.

Before it's too late.
