||Cross-Browser Layers, Part One|
|Subject:||Articles like these are frustrating...|
I am a complete newbie to the world of DHTML, and man, can I tell you it's a nightmare. A lot of code out there is for NS4 and IE4, and the whole notion of cross-browser is a complete hoax.
I would be really useful if the author brushed up on W3C DOM and started adding articles with this in mind for several reasons:
As I started scouring the net, I found it frustrating that code did not work for one browser or the other. It was so frustrating. However, when I came across the rare snippets of W3C code, it always worked (except on NS4). And now with NS6, I never touch NS4.
Lastly, I would not completely trust browser statistics. Microsoft automaps their integrated browser to go to MSN and other sources from within IE. MS then marks up the statistics for their search site and web browser is being used.
