    Question CSS3 Nav Buttons Question

    Hi, how are you doing?

    I have been struggling with the new Styling Features that come with CSS3. Don't get me wrong, I love it. But I have many questions.

    I guess one that comes off the top of my Head is, when creating buttons for Nav Menus or maybe even a Search Form using CSS3, what should one do when it comes to Earlier Versions of IE? This is something I have thought about, and tried to understand what issues come to be as a result of these older IE Browsers.

    So, to all you CSS3 Gurus, what should a simple minded person such as myself do in respect to the issues in which I speak? Should I design buttons in Photoshop, or just not make a big deal out of the IE Issues?

    Thank you

    Nothing. Think of CSS3 as an enhancement for those who can see it. As long as the site is usable in older browsers, that's good enough. Everyone can download a browser like Chrome and have all the newest bells and whistles in an instant, so if they don't do it, why chase after them with a silver platter?

    You can serve up CSS3-like behavior with the aid of JavaScript, but why load up pages with that unnecessary bloat for a few non-important visual features? It's not really practical.
