    Basically i got told to make a site for IE7 and Firefox 2.0. My client said that because IE7 will be taking over IE6 there is no reason to faff around with it. Furthermore 97% of visitors to his last site were using something other than IE6.

    Its now built but i need to redirect IE6 users to a splash page and ask them to either use FF or IE7.

    There will also be a button which when clicked gives them a cookie so they can browse with IE6 if they wish so.

    My life has been realy hectic of late. (GF's mum died 10 days ago), i am moving house and I have an exam in 10 days. If someone could direct me to how i could differentiate between browsers and how i could send a cookie.

    Help on this would be VERY VERY much appreciated

    Why do you need to tell you visitors that their browser is old and updated?! Especially IE6? I fear that not everyone "can" update to IE7 ... like me in my working environment ... they haven't updated to IE7 yet ... and who know if we will ever have it.

    I know you've probably heard this too many times already but, your site should work in all major browsers (FF2, IE6, IE7, Opera9 and Safari)

    So ... is it because the site doesn't look good in IE6 but is okay in all the others that you want to redirect people? If so ... post the link, we'll help you figure you the bug.

    p.s. My condolences to your GF and family.

    I'm very sorry for your condition.

    Now to business. Instead of giving a splash page, just give a notice on the first page. This is important because a lot of people just don't like seeing splash pages - it means another one click and people like to just go straight to content.

    If you can explain your problems, then do so. Most likely your problem is in the box model conformance of IE6... we'll see what we can do to working things out both ways of the equation.
