Hey guru's,
Is there a central place to go for information regarding which JavaScript methodologies to avoid when building on Netscape browsers?
IE has run everything we've thrown at it but netscape hates most of it....

we have a document that me and a collegue of mine compiled at work that lists out all the pitholes to avoid in order for your code to work with netscape, i wish i could send it to you but its company property.
the trick is to write code and test it with netscape, anything that works in netscape will work in IE (most of it anyway). Also use style sheets anytime you are using styles, netscape is not too kind on inline styles...well there a dozen more things to watch out for, i wish i could summarize.
if i come across a website which might help i will list it here in this forum.
I agree. Here's the link:
