I have redesigned my homepage and used DHTML Layers for a navigation that always remains at the bottom. It all works fine on PCs ( IE, Mozilla etc. ) but I have heard from Mac Users that it won't display on Mac ( don't know which OS ) in IE 5.1.

Now I have a Problem because I don't have a Mac where I could test things out and find the bug.

Is there somebody out there that could take a look at it? Or is there a way to simulate a Mac Browser on PC?

I would really appreciate any help that is offered! Thanks already.

The iCapture [danvine.com] service (free) will let you see your site rendered in Apple's Safari browser.

It's also a good idea to make sure your mark-up is valid before you try to debug for specific browsers. Keeps you from chasing your own tail, fixing things for one browser but that breaks your page in another, etc.

iCapture is great when it's up, but even then it doesn't allow you to see your site in IE5/Mac, only Safari. To me, IE5/Mac is the browser that I really need a way to test. Anyone have any other ideas?

How about Internet cafe's and copy shops that rent time on computers? That lets you check out functionality as well, which you can't do with a screen shot.
