I have to resort to having a few versions of some of my pages because Netscape 4.0 doesn't support quite a few (basic!)tags.
Firstly - how many browsers would you bother with trying to please.....and secondly......how do you point one webpage at a particular browser (Netsc.) and one at another browser (eg IE)within the one site?
Any help would be hugely appreciated...or any special tips on coping with browser incompatibility.
