Does anyone have any concerns about how the new website looks on old browsers such as Netscape Communicator 4.x?

In addition to having CSS formatting information withheld (which is understandable), Netscape 4.x doesn't display any logo image for the Mozilla banner, and the "Products," "Support," "Store," "Developers," and "About" links appear stacked on top of each other!

It is unreasonable, of course, to expect a modern website template to render ideally on a technologically obsolete browser like Netscape 4.x, but I'm left thinking that more compatibility shown towards users of older browsers would be better at attracting these users to the website and persuading them to switch to a newer and better web browser (i.e., Mozilla).
