      This is not a fix but just a suggestion..
      On some of my websites which uses a lot of CSS codes and have some compatibility issues, I add this code to inform viewers that they need to upgrade their browser, it only shows up if the browser is IE6 or bellow (like 5.5). you need to add this just bellow <body> tag, in case of vbulletin, probably to header template

      HTML Code:
      <!--[if lte IE 6]>
      <div id="infobar"><a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx"><p>It appears you have an old version of Internet Explorer. To view this website correctly please upgrade your browser. Click here to get the latest version of Internet Explorer.</div>
      <![endif]-->
      P.S. I do agree that they need to make the style compatible with IE6

      Edit: you can get the css code and images from http://jedi.org/p4/l10n/infobar/

        IE 6 is a web developers nightmare. Microsoft do not stick to world standards, instead they make up their own and then wonder why things do not work!

          Already logged by me in the bug tracker last week.

          Along with the fact you cannot read the timestamp of ANY post in a thread.

            You think these kind of items would have been fixed before a major release? Now I've upgraded my whole forum, and all the templates only to have all the templates change again in a next release with a known issue that is fixable by some javascript.

            There is a javascript fix for PNG's and IE6, but it kind of sucks.

              Since when has IE6 been unable to display png ? I thought it was simply unable to handle png transparancy ?
