I would like to think not, as the site is new I don’t have any stats to say otherwise but if that is the general concencus I am happy to go with that. I don’t think as a DJ he will have many elderly visitors, the most likely users of ie. 6&7.
I’m not a big fan of following the “general consensus” statistics too much. What matters is just the visitors to your site. So I would suggest to do some research into your visitor statistics. Check the number of visitors who use IE6 and IE7 for about a week or so and then decide if that number is large enough to warrant IE6 / IE7 fixes.
Right off the bat the IE7 problem with the top menu can be fixed by giving .menu height:37px OR overflow:hidden. You’ve also missed a semicolon after font-size:14px.
Unless you know you have a good portion of IE6 traffic, I don’t think it’s worth catering to that browser version. On the IE6 countdown site it says 0.2% of U.S. users still use IE6, which is microscopic: http://www.ie6countdown.com/
I wouldn’t drop IE7 support just yet–At least, not until you have some stats built up where you can make a measured decision of it’s worthiness.
You’ll probably find a dozen or so funky layout problems with IE6-7, and you can just target them in your stylesheet using the star (*) hack. Just do a google search for “css star hack” if you don’t know what it is and how to use it.
you can use some fallbacks for IE…more importantly suggest the users of IE6 to upgrade the browser or move to another browser…. and also if you do it in dreamweaver there is tool “check page–>check browser compatibily” and if any issue hits there is also the solution for it! at the bottom of dreamweaver
