Default What version of IE shipped with Win 98?

And do you still consider it when coding web pages?

Unless I'm mistaken (quite probable), Win 98 shipped with IE 4 but IE 5 came out very soon afterwards.

I wouldn't consider anything older than IE 6 nowadays - plus Opera, Mozilla and friends of course.

Not sure of Win98 but if it's of any help, Win98SE shipped with MSIE5.

IE 4 or 5... okay 5 should support css pretty well, if I remember. I wonder how many folks are still surfing with IE4 (I think I found one)!

While I do most of my email and browsing on a Mac (Mozilla), I still have Win98SE and run Firefox on it, which is a bit slow (need a Mobo upgrade). Only occasionly do I have to resort to IE 5

Not very many. This site reports stats from several sites, and it looks like IE4 is just a tiny fraction -- not even one percent. I also like to look at the statistics from The Counter.com since that draws from so many different sites, and there again it's less than one percent.

Thank heavens! Trying to maintain backwards compatibility is a good thing. Trying to maintain backwards compatibility back to the online equivalent of the Stone Age is almost impossibly complicated.
