Preparing Your Site for Navigator 5.0

Wednesday November 24th, 1999

Shelley Powers of inquiry.com has written an informative article on preparing your DHTML website for compatibility with Navigator 5.0 and the DOM standard. This one is definitely worth the read if you're interested in working to the DOM spec, but would like to keep a measure of backwards compatibility with older browsers.

That article you referanced <http://news.cnet.com/news…0-808608.html?tag=st.cn.1>. is on CNET, not one of the most reliable sources of information. Still, assuming everything is correct you do not seem to be able to read WHY AOL are not willing to use Netscape 5. Not for technological reasons, but because of their bundling deal. Now it may be just me, but I am sure I heard about a little trial, DOJ v MS I think, that was focused on exactly these practises. I mean who would ever CHOOSE to bundle a competitors problem instead of their own?
