Problems with Netscape & CSS
I have a table generated with CSS. In Internet Explorer, everything is hunky dory. However, in Netscape Navigator...borders are missing, hover is not working (or maybe it's bolding...I have the text bolded when I hover over it), and DIV doesn't seem to be working properly. Any ideas...or some website where I can go to see how to work around these issues for Netscape? Thanks in advance!!!

Need more info.......
Your table is generated with CSS? Or styled with CSS? Or you're using div's to simulate tables (CSS positioning)?
What version of Netscape? (4.x burps on CSS)
How are you doing the hover effect? (Netscape has to be version 6+ to make use of pseudo-code hover effects, I think).
DIV not working? Or styling for the DIV not working?
We'll need to see some code (or a link).

Sorry, I'm fairly new to CSS and don't know the lingo.
Here is my code:
I'm noticing the MAJOR problems with Netscape 4.x, and only minor border issues with Netscape 6+. What do I need to do to fix the 4.x MAJOR issues?

Nothing. NS 4.* has little or (worse) broken support of even CSS1.
We are talking about an extremely old browser. It does not follow the standards a browser is meant to. If your designing to standards, then you cannot go too far wrong.
Have a look at this article - http://www.alistapart.com/articles/netscape/
(ps the latest netscape has very good standards compliance, and of course there is the Mozilla Family)If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

Before you ask, have you Searched?

Consider a browser sniffer and re-direct visitors using Netscape 4 and IE 4 to a really ugly version of you site and invoke a pop-up apologizing for it and provide them a really long list of links of places they can upgrade their browers so they can properly see your site.</sarcasm>
I know of one (he's taken it down already) where it was a bright red pop-up with huge pink and green letters saying "UPGRADE ALREADY".
Code to current standards for current browsers. It's the easiest way.
