Over the last few momths ive been busy putting together for the school i work at. Looking pretty tasety but due to my lack of preperation and general "rushing" ive neglected to view it in internet explorer 5 or less, works brill in IE6 & 7Beta,firefox and opera but terrible in IE5 or less. I have a small few sites currently live and have been checking out the Stats and see that around 1% of my traffic use internet explorer 5 or less so im wondering wether its relevant to start a big change now and start ammending for IE5. Anyone got any tips or advice?

For 1% or less I say don't bother :) Fixing for IE5 is easy enough if you know what you're doing and have allowed for it from the start, but retrofitting fixes can be a pain.

Perhaps if i validate the CSS and html i stand a better chance?

Oh yes, you should do that anyway. If you do have any specific problems we can help with feel free to post them up.

If it makes you feel better, my CSS abilities have been subcontracted by several large design houses. The majority of the clients I work for (these design houses) only wish for their sites to look great in IE browsers 5+, Netscape and Opera 7+. Anything else is just gravy - they aren't concerned about it because they don't get enough traffic.

Besides, if you're *really* concerned about it, you can do as suggested and validate - but also add in a conditional comment so you can target the older IE browsers. Simple enough to do.

just a small update,

attempted to begin validating my code, mega errors so decided to begin building again. Sad i know but sometimes it the only way, its not the first time. Site looking great in Firefox (my favourite browser) IE 5+ and opera so im uber happy. Also encorporating the commnet hacks for relevant browsers, honestly was never really very aware of the added benefits of this. Learning curve

:)
