Exactly what type of features are planned that may only work on a certain browser or require a high-speed connection?

ADSL connection.

Windows 2000 Pro
1.7GHz Celeron
Intel motherboard; audio, video, Ethernet on-board.
512MB RAM

(I will be building a new system soon)

=================

The question if dial-up users are to be considered in the design of the new site is a valid one, even though most of Justin's on-line students seem to come here after seeing his YT vids. There are still  areas near me that don't have DSL or Cable internet connections available.

Designing with low-bandwidth users in mind will also keep site bandwidth usage lower (I don't know if this is a concern any more or not).

You know, if this issue is really coming up, id make the site the way youd make it for ONLY high speed users, but then have a button to switch to a simpler text based page.  I mean, it might be a little extra work, but the site will be better in the long run for it, in my opinion.
