Your question --- has little guidance for answering it properly and -- although it might seem to you that is is easily answerable -- it does not contain enough information for us to help you and it appears that you are wanting widespead browser support -- that is a self-defeating goal when you go that far back.

You appear to be at the very beginning of the process -- so that explains your post to me enough that I can recommend some things that should help you along the way.

You are developing a site for a shoe maufacturer -- let's start with that. What aspects of the business will the site be responsible for implementing? Production? Inventory? Worker hours/pay/training/evaluation? Will the administrative staff want to use it? Will it have eCommerce? A catalog? Buyer information? Vendors?

As you can see -- what you need to use depends on what you seek from the code...so -- be detailed about what you expect and where you want to go with it. You will undoubtedly get tripped up if you fail to mention some major functionality and start in a direction that will not support that functionality. It is very difficult to implement major functionality and integrate that into the system after the fact. Engineering is a far more demanding discipline than many developers know and a system that is 'shot from the hip' will not make it to the end of the SDLC intact -- no amount of managerial voodoo will fix poor engineering -- not Agile -- not anything.

I use ASP.NET and SQL Server alot, however...start with some HTML pages and get a sense of what types of operations you want to do -- that will tell you which technologies will support that and -- you are going to need a lot of HTML/CSS/Javascript infrastructure anyway. ASP.NET is an excellent and extensible framework -- you will not encounter much that it cannot do already, so -- if you are insisting on a recommendation -- that is my opinion -- use ASP.NET and SQL Server to begin. If you need services -- and you likely will very soon -- there are a few service types that ASP.NET supports with little effort and even some that will require a lot -- but...WCF, for example can handle them all and is highly configurable -- I doubt you will be doing anything using services that WCF cannot be made to support. It is possible to implement simple services with no more than an HTTP Handler in ASP.NET. (ASHX)

Besides, there are many developers and lots of documentation already and also -- Microsoft implements most of the technologies you will need either 'out of the box' or through 3rd party resources -- it makes sense for a would-be tool provider to support Microsoft technologies -- right?

As for supporting ancient browsers -- the server can be made to accomodate whatever browser is requesting a page, for example -- the real question is -- is that a cost effective answer and have you looked at your potential user base and noticed a need, or are you simply wanting to cover all contingencies? Either way -- as has already been said -- those browsers are museum pieces at this point -- but that is the client side and again -- the server can be made to accomodate those browsers -- but, the functionality would of course suffer. So -- if you know that some of your users have only IE5 and are willing to live with that -- certainly it would be very noble of you to support that...but you would be gaining little -- apart from someone's appreciation. How much is that worth to you? Is it worth thousands of dollars of development time and effort and potential issues? I would think that someone that is still insisting on using IE5 probably has not bought shoes in -- years, and they will not be buying any on your eCommerce site using IE5....just a fact, my friend. I doubt tht you will see much of that though -- so my advice to you is not to worry about IE before 7 or 8. Honestly -- I use IE9 and it is more of a nightmare and hinderance to me than 7 or 8 were. 10 and 11 are promised to be better, but -- I have not seen that to be true for me so far. Truth is -- I miss 8 and Chrome is more developer friendly to me.

I wish you well.
