    Which browsers should I accomodate?

    I am using CSS for the layout in my site and it tests ok in netscape 7. Which other browsers should I test my site in?

    IE 6/5.5/5, Mozilla 1.6.x/1.7.x, Mozilla Firefox 0.10(1.0PR), Opera 7.x on Windows, Safari, IE5 and OmniWeb on Mac - plus check that it degrades reasonably well in Netscape 4.x, MSN Tv Viewer, Lynx

    daunting? yes, but that's my usual routine (although the Mac part does rely on kind souls out there to send me screenshots)

    Can you run all these windows browsers on one system (Windows XP)? For example, if I have Netscape 7 installed, can I also install version 4?

    Yes. I'd also add to redux's list a slightly older Mozilla (i.e. 1.0), since it shares code with Netscape 7 (if you have NN7 installed then don't worry about it). Also remember that your layout doesn't have to look exactly the same on all these browsers; there are some times where it just won't happen (case in point: 1px dotted borders in IE vs. in Mozilla and Opera). If you're willing to "let go" on a few minor details you'll find that designing is much less of a pain in the rear .

    Can anyone tell me where to get Mozilla 1.6 and IE 5 and 5.5 for Windows? Also Netscape 4?

    Which version of Lynx and MS TV viewer should I get? Are they all the same?

    Thank you so much for all your kind help!

    Mac browsers should definately be tested in. Safari doesn't render form styles apart from size and font specifications.

    Thank you so much for all your help. I am glad for the links to previous browser sites. Also happy to hear about the Safari screenshot generator! Good deal!

    I tested my site here, but beware! This site shows screen shots of recent requests, and there was some wicked stuff coming through.

    The Bible says adulterers will go to hell unless they repent of (turn from) their sin.
