You are replying to this message

"Would you pay double the price for your web site to reach an extra two percent of visitors? You and I might, but it doesn't necessarily make sense economically."

You completely missed the point. If you plan on having a lot of customers then 2% can be a lot of people and a lot of money! Even paying double would usually be worth it!

And I would seriously question anyone who would charge *DOUBLE* to make a web site that could be viewed in IE and Mozilla. That would imply they are writing it twice which means they are doing something very wrong (either trashy code or just pocketing your money).
