IE 5.5 supports CSS. I'm not suggesting we do anything drastic that would cause the site to stop working for 5.5. So saying that it won't work for long in IE 5.5 with those changes is a bit drastic. There are plenty of sites (and have been for YEARS) that don't use tables for layout and get along just fine.
With that said, and no offense to the 1 guy still using IE 5.5, I *don't* think we should be supporting that browser still. It literally has 0.01% market share. Again, I'm not suggesting we set out to break the site for IE 5.5, but I really think that worrying about IE 5.5 will just hold this site back from moving forward and, as stated, using best practices.
