I have been tasked with developing the IE8 action plan for Microsoft New Zealand and I need your help!

Come and see browsers by the numbers, some of the new stuff in IE8 and help me build an action plan on how to rid the NZ of IE6.

I will start with a presentation and demo then take a group discussion.
