Hello all. Thanks for the input. As John mentioned, I am beginning
work on the new Radiant UI, and my main goals are:
- It needs to function correctly
- I want the CSS/Markup to be as simple (understandable) as possible
as this is open source
- I want to produce something that won’t inadvertently break
(maintainer removes one line to change something only to learn
that that line was necessary as a browser hack)
Browser limitations/variations work against all of these (I’m currently
fighting with Firefox). I’m trying to find a happy (read:
“sane”)-medium and I wanted people’s take on things.
The consensus seems to be:
* Most could live without IE6 (no current users requiring it)
* Many/some could foresee a case where IE6 might be needed
So, I agree with John & Jim that we should shoot for IE 7+ support with
the ability to add in IE 6 as an extension. Besides, I’m working on
some of the harder parts now and it’s looking like PNG support may be
the only limitation (I had other ones in mind when I asked this question
but I think those may be working themselves out).

Chris, I’m trying to clear up my schedule to get more involved in the
new UI. Have you forked radiant-prototype or do you gave a public
location for ideas that you’re working on?
It didn’t make sense to fork John’s Radiant Prototype as that is really
a complete prototype of the existing UI. I have made a copy of it and
will be hosting it on GitHub here shortly (I’m trying to get the
_layout.haml file working so that the nav will be nailed down before
Time permitting, I’ll have it up by Wednesday.
