    Smile Take a look Nutscrape 4 majoer problems

    Could somebody please tell me the reasons why my site is not showing up in NS 4.

    http://www.search-engine-professionals.co.uk

    I know NS 4 has problems with CSS, but i am not too bothered how it looks in NS 4 just as long as the user can read the text and navigate around the site.

    I am fairly new to CSS, i would really like to know about the cross broser issues.

    any help would be much appreicated

    cheers

    Well, I don't have NS4 on my machine...

    But my first assumption was that there was a missing </table> or something so I tried to validate it. Long story short, your table looks fine, but the valuator couldn't detect any characterset.

    Your CSS also isn't valid, but I didn't see anything that's all that fatal from what I remember from NS4.

    Hope this helps--it's been a while since I've used NS4! :-p

    You have made the style sheet completely unavailable to the browser.

    Code:
    <style type="text/css"><!-- @import url(app_stylesheet.css); --> </style>
    will not attach the style sheet to netscape 4.7 and probably not to IE 4.0 either.

    try putting the styles that work cross browser / cross platform in a seperate css file first.

    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles/generic.css" />
    The bright side is that your site does work without css so a plus for accessibility.

    hope that helps

    LOL so you don't care about NS 4, yet you made a post on why it doesn't work. Isn't that contradicting?

    Anyways, do what the guy said above and use the old fashioned way to link stylesheets via the LINK REL command.
