The only thing that can be done, however, to mitigate the damage now is to get IE 7 out as quickly as possible to where it matters most, and that ain't the East Coat of the USA.

For pure curiousity...does someone know WHY they did not turn the switch on for ie6? interesting what excuse would be used if questioned about that.
