: Netscape Problems?
: I was under the impression that NetScape did HTML code better than IE, and
: so if it did not work well in NN, then you were catering to Billy rather
: than learning good coding. Billy makes lots of do-dads that no one else
: or will touch with a ten foot pole, if you want to incorporate them, then
: you are just helping to drive a peg into the heart of NN. Sure we all want
: the latest and greatest in websites, but there are still 386 and 486
: machines in use that haven't a clue as to how to use the newest browsers.

Netscape is no where near as compliant as MSIE is and does not render HTML
4.0 with CSS anywhere near properly. Since this is a fact, how can you
justify the above statement? I have quit even trying to make css work right
in Netscape, if the page won't render properly--Oh Well!
