Is this a lame attempt at a troll or are you just thick?
With Mozilla usage already significantly above Netscape 4.x (~5% vs ~2% on most sites and on Google stats), NN 4.x users are *not* the way forward (they won't change under any circumstances anyhow as anybody left on that browser is held on it either corporate or university IT support, or by complete unwillingness to install any new software).
Ass-backward design from the 1990s is also, self-evidently, *not* the way forward.
If we want Mozilla browsers to lead the way then we should damn well have a website that does the same..
On the other hand, the web site certainly does need to work in IE6, which is where 60%+ of potential Mozilla users are coming from. I assume it does.
