I was like this too at first but found out that if I also ran my site on one of those
automated website checkers I had tons of errors.

It's just that IE is more forgiving and will be blind to those errors.

Netscape is really more compliant to the HTML standards but its hard to say what
standards to follow.

Certainly IE has caught up and is beating netscape now but does that mean IE HTML and java is the correct version?

So I suggest that all HTML programmers stick to the standard html until all browsers
have the updated support for the code. I like reading the "WEB TECHNIQUES"
and also the CD Book with several shareware and trail ware programs for the web.

I reccomend you visit your local book store and invest in that $13 CD magazine.

It has a wealth of info on it.

I still build my site for 100% compliance under 4.76 Netscape.

But more and more people are moving to using server side browser detection
and serving the person with the respective browser html.
This cuts down on broken looking sites.

Oh and did you hear! Microsoft lost the java court case!
Shame on you Microsoft!

Java will remain cross platform forever. Anyone trying to dilute it should also loose
in court!
