    My Web design team is going to be working on a new design for a fairly well known site, and their admin has requested that it be compatible (at least somewhat compatible) with WebTV. Now my problem is that I don't use WebTV and frankly I personally don't know anyone who does use WebTV.

    Could someone provide some tips for making a WebTV-compatible site, or at least some things to avoid (lots of tables, etc)? If someone who has access to WebTV would be willing to test-drive the design before it goes live, in order to work out all the bugs and such associated with WebTV's browsing capabilities, that would be just as good (email me ).

    Also if anyone could provide some links to sites or articles that discuss WebTV compatiblity issues, that would be appreciated as well. Thanks.
