 CSS 2.1 makes layout easy ans IE8 passes ACID2.

 I have some javascript that detects the browser and warns users of IE <8
 that they need to upgrade.

 Maybe bleeding edge for commercial sites, but helping the user upgrade
 is going them a favour.


Tell that to government... many, and in some departments most, are still
using IE6. I'm quite sure they won't appreciate me telling them it's
time to upgrade. On the plus side though, MediaWiki is breaking
ground :)


What's interesting is that the government is behind a bunch of this section 508 and other such disability concerns. I love to point out when their sites fail and tell them that they couldn't receive a government grant if they were in the private sector. Do as I instruct, not as I do.
