    I think it really depends what your client’s target looks like. For a site that is most probably going to be seen in FF, Chrome and latest Safari, I believe you should let your imagination run wild(well, mostly). However, from my experience I can tell you that when you work for a company that has 70% of their audience on IE6, your requirements are completely different. And many executives in companies like that one will expect pixel perfect coding. To tell you the truth, while I completely loathe IE – and IE6 especially – I came to see each pixel perfect page as a victory against the execs at Microsoft, like a kick in the butt, if you will. But enough of my petty fantasies. I truly believe that we should work on the clients’/companies’ expectations. Yet clients/managers should know what to expect – or not to expect. Not telling things, crossing your fingers and hoping the client doesn’t meet IE6 ever might work for small projects. But when you have a QA team behind you that already has a set of guidelines and requirements, it is kind of impossible to do so.
