Extra charge for Internet Explorer compatiblity

Jim nailed it down in his comment to my story about Internet Explorer problems: the fact that Microsoft is unable to do things right with Internet Explorer costs customers money. A lot of money.
And due to our own experiences with Internet Explorer, we will require an extra charge for Internet Explorer compatibility with web projects in the future.
In fact, we always placed some extra time for browser compatibility optimizations in our internal calculations. But in the future, we will tell our customers: if you want to use your intranet application with Internet Explorer, it will cost you a noticable amount of money extra. And for your internet project you have no choice to support Internet Explorer, but it costs you a lot of extra money, too. No, please don't complain to us, complain to Microsoft for being unable to get basic things right.
