    When I was starting to learn html I figured I’d learn standards. Reason: I wanted it to work.

    Then there was IE. Which I promptly dumped. And as you saw with my blog the other day I don’t care to test with it. I’m not a professional web designer. I know enough to do what I want only.
    And I don’t want IE.

    I try to use standards, but as we know, it’s not always possible. I’m not strict to the point of dumping other people’s code (haloscan) if it breaks the validation.

    It’s a different story if you’re developing for other people – clients, readers, etc. – over whose browsers you have no control. You can’t dump IE.

    With a bit of experience, you become familiar with the quirks of the various browsers and can learn to design/develop around them.

    Keeping it simple helps too. If you’re trying to do something in particular but find the mark-up/CSS/work-arounds/hacks are getting too complicated or out of hand, then perhaps the design should be re-worked to enable simpler coding.
