Re: IE Sucks

Personally, I have been burnt many times and wasted 100s hours in the past working around IE quirks. Yesterday, it happened again, and I didn't realize it till now, leaving a portion of The CDCer header chopped off by IE for hours!

The cause of the problem is the negative margin surrounding the header block. This is a common CSS practice to control layout, and it worked fine with Firefox and Opera on both Windows XP SP2 and Mac as well as Safari, but not IE 6.0.
