Preparing Your Site for Navigator 5.0

Wednesday November 24th, 1999

Shelley Powers of 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.

This is true, I myself worked for a large Swedish Telecom company (name withheld) that enforced MSIE as The Intranet Browser. I nevertheless tested my HTML with Netscape since it is stricter and does not allow the sloppy HTML IE digests. When NS accepted the code, I trusted it to work on IE as well, more or less... (Of course a lot of internal customers got in touch with me asking "why does not the dynamic menu things work in Netscape?"). So I ended up writing JavaScript with if():s... -no problema!
