For a long time we tried to render okay in really old browsers, so we
kept using the tables-based skin as default and on the forrest website.
Then we decided to move on and use CSS. If there is some stuff that we
can do to assist older browsers, then we should do that.

We do need to provide a list of expectations. I wouldn't want to try
to maintain a browser compliance table though. Perhaps we can make
a list of requirements and point to browser tests at other site.
