he new home of was designed and implemented to be fully displayed and functional on most modern internet browsers.  However, the site will not display correctly in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6, or on earlier versions of Internet Explorer.  The layout of graphical images will be incorrect, or a given page's graphical images will be missing entirely; also, IE6 appears to be rather incapable of interpreting the various ContentPages of a MasterPage of ASP.NET, design features which this site employs heavily.
The reason for this is that these earlier versions of Internet Explorer - IE8 is presently available for download - took a somewhat cavalier approach to adhering to the rules of HyperText Mark-Up Language (HTML), the predominant language used to create web sites and their pages.  While other modern browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, et. al. are generally uniform in their display of a web page, IE6* requires special HTML tags and JavaScript in order for it to display correctly.  Unfortunately, in this case the "solution" is worse than the problem:  these special HTML tags and JavaScript make maintenance and updating of the site difficult, and such difficulty will only increase with time as new browsers and new versions of existing browsers become available.
It is for this reason that the decision was made, in lieu of "hacking up" site to enable it to operate on what is a dwindling percentage of browsers, to instead direct our IE6* users to this explanation page, as well as to invite them to download the new Internet Explorer 8, which this site is perfectly compatible with.  Download is free, takes under 10 minutes, and most if not all of your current browser settings will be transferred to your updated Internet Explorer:
