The Web has changed; new technology and equipment mean that your old website may not display optimally or correctly. Your website has to deal with many challenges:
The days of one browser are over; Internet Explorer is much less dominant than it was, and its three most recent versions render pages very differently. New, standards-compliant browsers—Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari, etc., for the first time, pave the way for a Web that is truly universal.

Widescreen monitors change the way sites must be designed. A few years ago, when monitors were smaller and had a 4:3 aspect ratio (like a TV), it was easier to design websites that looked more consistent on the 14", 15", and 17" screens. Now, with higher resolution, widescreens of many different aspect ratios display some old websites very oddly, with long lines of small text running full width, making it very difficult to read.
Search engines have gotten smarter. With proper coding, your site can tell the search engines what's important on each page. This semantic markup can help your site be properly indexed by the search engine robots. It will display better, too. Search engine optimization is a hot topic, but there's nothing that will return results better than a well coded site. There are no tricks, no magic, that will boost your site to the top of search results, but a site built to modern standards gives you the best chance.
