    I have maintained a commercial website for about 5 years, learning as I go. I recently decided to totally revamp the site using CSS and was rather excited discovering its power. I am now using HotDog 6 as my development system and Paint Shop Pro 7 for graphics. Having used IE 5 as I ramped up the CSS learning curve, I decided to see how the code behaved in NetScape 4.5 and was greatly disapointed seeing how poorly it behaved.

    Any suggestions for an easier way to go or do I need to tediously test everything as I go.

    Like HTML and Javascript, there are varying degrees of support among the browsers. NS4 has poor support for CSS. You have a few options. 1) You could search these forums (this comes up about once a week) and then post specific questions on what you can't find or 2) download a shareware program like stylemaster (www.westciv.com) which helps in creating style sheets and illustrates what's supported by what browser and what isn't.

    This site has always been in my bookmarks and has served as a very useful tool regarding CSS:

    Earnie,

    Check out WebCoder's resources on CSS - they have meticulously tested every facet of CSS on each browser and they'll give you the lowdown.
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)
