This is our ongoing challenge, isn't it.
As long as you're aiming for "similar" looking pages, and not an identical look, the answer is yes, you can usually do this. It takes abit of study and lots of testing, but it can be done.
Is there a particular effect you are trying to make happen across several browsers? Feel free to ask a specific question. It will probably help lots of us to look at a particular problem area.
Sorry, but I have to vent......anyway, depending on what you are trying to do, it is usually possible to get them looking the same for most browsers.
Are you using Dreamweaver, because sometimes Dreamweaver can be the culprit. I know I have had to go back and strip some extra or not needed tags from the page.
I think you should do as Tedster mentioned and let us know specifics.
I will list out the problems that I have faced reg. browser compatibility.
1)I have created menus in html with menu builder tool.It worked well in IE and Netscape 6.0 but it is not working in Netscape 4.7 . I think the reason is, mouse Over is not getting fired in Netscape 4.7 .Which means I cannot frame any mouse over event.
Is there any solution for mouse over to work even in netscape 4.7.
If so pl. suggest me some.
For all u'r guidance and help.
The onMouseover event handler definitely works in Netscape 4.7, so I'd suggest looking at the function which your onMouseover is calling.
If the function just eems to hard to fix, webrefernce.com [webreference.com] has some good DHTML menus and many of them have been updated for Netscape 6 and yet still work on Netscape 4.x. Maybe you can find something there.
I've found that alignment behaves much better in Netscape when you use close paragraph tags </p>. Yeah, they're supposed to be optional, but we are talking about Netscape. It's a good habit to get into, anyway, since XHTML requires close tags for everything.
If you have an alignment problem that this doesn't fix, you can let me know, if you want. I love trying to debug Netscape ;)
