hi.

i was looking at the necessity to continue to code hacks for ie6, by looking at its current market share.

but i see big diffs between different online sources, such as here:

http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

which says 12% - which ain't much, so i may start abandoning ie6 hacks

but here it says 24%, which means ie6 hacks are still necessary.

http://marketshare.hitslink.com/report.aspx?qprid=3&qpcustom=Microsoft+Internet+Explorer+6.0

http://marketshare.hitslink.com/browser-market-share.aspx?qprid=2

how can these two sources have such different results?

which is right?

naturally, ie6 suks and i hope it dies a quick death.

hard to believe anybody is still using this ancient browser.

Basically, if your markup is valid (http://validator.w3.org/) and semantic (http://boagworld.com/technology/semantic-code-what-why-how), you don't have to use excessive hacks to any browser.
