    CSS site vs IE 5

    I recently built www.studentsagainstterrorism.org with a tableless layout using CSS, and someone called me up and told me that it does not work in IE 5. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can work around this? an auto browser detect and redirect to a table page if nothing else?

    I was told that the navigation was not functional. Is this not true?

    Odd, normal clicking on the links doesn't work though you can tab through them or right click on them and follow them fine.

    I use IE 5.5 and your site looks and works fine for me.

    As for a link to browser stats, try this:

    http://www.thecounter.com/stats/2003/May/browser.php

    I'm not sure how accurate they are these days, but it should give you a good idea.

    Hope this helps,
    Mark

    Thanks for the link! Since it works in IE 5.5, does anyone know the percent of people using IE5 and IE 5.5? Because the link only gives me IE5.x, or does that mean 5.5?

    TheCounter's stats haven't been updated for over three months, and are a very poor substitute for stats from your own site.

    In my experience, IE5.5 accounts for about 30-50% of those people using IE5.x

    The problem is that I can't get stats from my own site, b/c it hasn't really been released yet and when it is I want it to work for IE 5. Does anyone know ways to get this site to work in IE 5?
