    Netscape 4.78 and IE 4

    We are redesigning 2BigFeet.com's website and are moving to an all-css design.

    When viewed in Netscape 4.78 and IE 4.0 the stylesheets don't apply at all. Should I work to get this to render better or just give up on these browsers?

    I should note - all the content displays, just without formatting. Below is a screen shot of one of them... they both render the same:

    Don't worry about them. They're 7 years old and if someone is still using NN4 or IE4 they probably don't expect the pinnacle of design in their browsers

    I'd have to agree with Vinnie, it's time people finally said goodbye and let those two dinosaurs go. As long as the content is readable then I wouldn't worry about anything else.

    Or......seperate the positional (and buggy boxes) elements to an @import file, keeping the simpler things (fonts, relative sizes, colours etc) in a linked .css file. Best of both worlds

    I think we should now shift to a newer version of these browsers...... this could be the cause.... they are old enough working with such wonderful site like 2BigFeet.com
