I realize that Netscape4 is a bit outdated at this point, but a very significant market share still utilizes it and i think it’s rather obnoxious to write a site that doesn’t support it at all. The two things that notably cause trouble are floating frames and style sheets. My two favourite frames sites are faery ring and the incomparable sky puddles. The former is compatible with Netscape, but stunning in MSIEX. Sky Puddles, however, is rather unreadable in Netscape, which means i use MSIEX at least three times every week to view it. The worst offender of all had been prolific.org, which was using shtml and just came up as a blank background on Netscape. For a whole week i figured that the woman behind it was on vacation, but when i saw her on the Power Blogger list the other day i investigated in MSIEX and found a whole site there! However, now this issue seems to have been fixed and i am merrily reading the page.
Meanwhile, did i unintentionally pillage the torrez.org‘s P.B. layout? I don’t think i did, but i feel more and more guilty every time i see his crisp white tables with their black borders. I took the table/border code from my old scribble layout, and i got the sidebar idea from Ezis. God knows i linked to Torrez plenty already, but please just go read his site again to appease my guilty conscience.
