Hi X-Tensive:

Our client is currently tied to using IE6 for the most part. We have a concern during testing that some colors are not properly displayed in the interface. We acknowledge that IE6 is already in the phase of being a legacy item but we just need to make this work with our client of 300+ users. Any inputs from you would be appreciated.

Please see attachments below for the comparison of IE6 and IE8 outputs: IE6 [attachment=1:3skpf5js]IE8_Search.JPG[/attachment:3skpf5js] IE8 [attachment=0:3skpf5js]IE6_Search.JPG[/attachment:3skpf5js]

Looking forward to hear from you.

Regards, Ver

Hi Sergey,

First of all, thanks for looking into this issue.

I've tried overwriting the CSS files. However, the resulting layout was not very clean and it is probable that I'm missing something other than just overwriting the Main.css file. The theme I'm using is Default. Here's a comparison of the screens produced by the original and later CSS files using IE6:

Using original CSS file: [attachment=1:9hzo6y7g]orig_css.JPG[/attachment:9hzo6y7g]

Modified CSS file: [attachment=0:9hzo6y7g]newcss.JPG[/attachment:9hzo6y7g]

Appreciate your help on this.

To say: IE6 is dead.

e.g.: Microsoft sends flowers to IE6 funeral

There are always will be some hardcore IE6 users. We have 4% such visitors on our site. NetMarketShare stats show that 17% of internet users have IE6. That's truly unbelievable :)

It looks like there are no css at all.

I've extracted contents of archive into d:/Downloads/HelpServer_ie6_fixed/. Then I copied these files as it shown here to "wwwroot" dir on hosting and all works fine.

One more note: have you tried to press Ctrl-F5 in IE to refresh CSS?
