And, unfortunately, often neither do the people paying the money, as
long as the page looks almost exactly as they want it to look, when
accessed using out of the box copies (i.e. no assisitive technology,
no accessibility features turned, no tightening of security) of 
browsers that correctly use the User Agent string in somewhere between
in excess of 80% and in excess of 90% of the hits in their web site
logs (regardless that some browsers might cache better, and some
browsers forge the User Agent string because of discrimination against
minority browsers).
