Initial warning message
Clicking 'Why should I upgrade?' shows some reasons
- Only loads and displays for IE 6 or under
- Uses jQuery
- Supplies a link to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8
- You can change the CSS to make it blend in with your theme
To enable the IE6 upgrade message add the following code to your webpage. If you already use the jQuery library you do not need to include it again. If you would prefer to use a local copy of jQuery download it below and amend line 2 in the code.
<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/UpdateIE6.css" type="text/css" />
