Browser compatibility

  Daunted 12:02 18 Oct 2006

I am a silver surfer who has decided to take up the challange of designing my own webpage/site. I am quite happy to learn HTML and CSS using just Notepad but when my new webpage/site appears in Firefox or Opera everything goes all over the place. I think this has something to do with the way IE6 interprets CSS. So, could someone help me out here before i lose interest and just give up. Is there a tutorial or even a book i could purchase that would explain in terms that even an old codger like myself can understand and overcome the problem mentioned earlier. Thanks folks! Daunted

Hi chap,

You should download a trial copy of Dreamweaver as this has all the CSS features built in and functions which make sure your site is multi browser compatibile - it is a 30 day trial so if you are doing just the one site it should do you.

Otherwise a nice little cheat is to find someones site you like the look of and do a right click and choose "view source" then you can copy their source code and find where their style sheet is located - then just type the URL of their CSS into your browser and download a copy of it... then save this as your CSS and away you go knowing it will be multi browser compatible...

W3 Schools have good tutorials on HTML and CSS. They also provide interactive examples which allow you to change the code and see what happens:
