Shocking suggestion: Charge more to support old browsers!

Working in web:
The estimated time to read this article is less than a minute

The idea of charging clients more to make their website look identical in older browsers is not exactly earth shattering. That said I’m amazed how few web designers take this approach. For me the logic is simple. Producing pixel perfect design in Internet Explorer 6 and 7 takes longer and therefore I should be paid for that extra time.

I would be interested to hear how other people approach this problem. Let me know in the comments below.
