    I have never designed for IE6, and I never will. I have actually joined the IE6NoMore.com movement (I even made a MyBB plugin for it).

    yes that is the main reason I've heard that they still use I.E 6. They are using other *cough control* software that only works with it and other applications.


    lol also even 512 is still behind the times. Mine has 4GB. Ram is not expensive as it used to be. Look you can buy a GB for about 20 bucks.

    (This is where I buy my parts) But it doesnt surprise me. schools have very low budgets. They can't even give pencils out anymore..

    I know from my own expiriance, it's a nightmare to make a perfect design for FF and also for all IE versions.. because I had this problem and I didn't have all IEs installed on my computer, I found this greate IE emulator, that shows you how your sites look in IE 5.5, 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0 beta..

    I was quite proud of one of my website designs, until I saw it on a Mac with Internet Explorer 5.5...

    No surprise. Schools buy computers for thousands of students. Not individual. So to replace or upgrade every computer in the school will cost a bomb.
    You can get a ram for $20. But to buy more than 1,000 pieces will cost them more than $20,000.

    At that given rate, they could most probably buy it directly from the source at wholesale value.

    Nop, not at all. From the very beginning I always test my site at least in three major browsers and all of them must be updated. I design and test in IE, Opera, and Firefox. Now I also test in Google Chrome.
