When I made the Asteroid Theme for WordPress, I wasn’t planning on IE-proofing it. The plan was to simply make sure that it works on most modern browsers like Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera and IE9 or later.
It turns out that the theme’s menu / navigation is not properly displayed on previous versions of Internet Explorer like IE8, IE7, IE6 and so on. There were also other various design irregularities. This uncompromising behavior is peculiar to Internet Explorer or Internet Destroyer as some would call it.
