Re: rollover buttons that do not require software installation

Another vote for CSS. And, if any of your visitors are using an ancient browser with outdated CSS support, too bad. Supporting laggards and Luddites is no longer justifiable. Also, DO NOT use ActiveX, Flash, or Java. There are tons of security issues, not to mention AX being specifically for IE. And people are increasingly hostile toward being forced to install software or authorize permissions just to see a website.

I feel REALLY sorry for anyone who has to support a pre-IE6 browser.

People who have javascript disabled are the Number One pain in the backside I've been dealing with the last 2-3 years. HTML5 on non-5 browsers is quite problematic as well (especially if it's one of the no javascript crowd). And I want it made legal to hurt Admins who 1) can't figure out the javascript thing themselves; and 2) don't know how to enable scripting for trusted sites *and* deal with whitelisting sites.

I'm glad I get to support IE7 and IE8... and that's it. And only IE7 for the remainder of the year.
