Dear Editor:
With regard to the issues people have been having using non-recent versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer, I think it is important for a web site to recognize the diversity of its users. Not everyone who accesses ILW.COM is an attorney who can afford the latest computers with the fastest processors and fattest hard drive, which is what the recent versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer require. Your site may be accessed in a public library with donated computers, viewed by those whom you especially want to reach out to with the latest immigration information. ILW.COM has obviously spent a lot of time and thought in designing and creating your site. In my opinion, there is simply no reason for limiting your potential audience by recommending/requiring the use of those browsers.

I use the Opera web browser which is not a resource hog like Netscape and Internet Explorer, is web standards-compliant, and is blazingly fast. I have no problems whatsoever using this browser to view ILW.COM. I suggest that you have a look at the 'Best Viewed with Any Browser' campaign and try to make future versions of ILW.COM compliant with the 'Accessible Site Design' guidelines. You may also want to consider the guidelines and helpful tips at the World Wide Web Consortium.

Both sites discuss how to make your site accessible to everyone. This way ILW.COM can ensure that as many users as possible can take advantage of the information published and enjoyed on ILW.COM.
