I am trying to find some kind of resource (ex. a chart, article, etc.) that will tell me what browsers are compatible with what aspects of cascading style sheets. My company is balking at using style sheets (altogether!) because of some older versions of Netscape and the Mac might have problems looking at our site.

So for example, I'm trying to find out things like: If we use style sheets, what functionality would work in IE 5.5 but not IE 5.0.

Any input is much appreciated!

Thanks--

There's a very thorough chart about cross browser support and bugs at
RichInStyle [richinstyle.com].

There's another chart on WebReview [webreview.com] that helps to see the differences in support between IE5.0 and IE 5.5

Just using your example, IE5 and 5.5 handle inheritance differently. If you assign a class to a table, the cells in that table will display accordingly in 5.5 but display the default in 5.0

Thanks for the example. I never tripped over that before (that I know of!)

And welcome to Webmaster World, Dr_Kelvin.
