I was thinking there is no reason to support older obsolete and rarely 
encountered browsers, but there are great reasons to attempt to 
support the old html user code that the old browsers used to run.

old code, old browser = OK
old code, new browser = OK as much as possible
new code, old browser = probably not.
new code, new browser = html5 spec

Especially for DOM scripting, interactivitity, any worthwhile new 
features, accessibility, and general usabiilty in today's WWW, not 
worth it to cater to old browsers but maybe worth it to cater to old 
html code.
Thanks and Best Regards,
