I think it may be worth to define exactly what we're talking about 
(again, haven't read through the entirety of this thread...maybe this 
has already been done, but indulge me): the "marketing" front-end of a 
banking site, or the actual bit where you see your account information, 
initiate transactions, etc. Surely the design aspect on the latter part 
(whose lack of accessibility / cross-browser functionality, I would 
imagine, is one of the main parts that are causing this debate) is not 
as pronounced, and therefore less of an issue when creating reasonably 
robust layouts?
