Share the problems with you? I'll try and remember them. As for files or URLs I'm afraid I can't, for one thing I am on a University computer, not my own, and I never have put up one of the shitty pages. Sorry.
As far as I can remember, IE had great problems with animated GIFs. I was creating a pretty simple GIF image, with about 30 frames, looping, and IE didn't do the masks right, and so I had to od each frame exactly.
Um. Text flow into the graphics, you know, where you have a graphic on the page with text supposed to flow nicely around (what's the tag, I can't remember), but the last couple of lines of text always used to collide with the image. Let me try a dodgy ASCII picture...

What should have happened -
I hope that makes sense ('a' is text, 'p' is piccy, 'x' is messy)
Tables didn't always work, when using the <nomargin> tag (although that MIGHT not be W3C, I'm not sure. In which case, feel free to kill me). It always used to have a margin on the right hand side of the page, even with 100% all over the place.

Hmmmm. I really can't say I've ever seen any table problems with NS. Maybe it's cause I define my cells very well (I use GoLive and then tidy it up with BBEdit). If you can point me at an example, I'll head on over.
> For instance... if you don't define a very specific (pixel or
Ah. I always define my cells really well (percentages or pixels for all of them). And yes, I have actually noticed that sometimes they disappear if you don't define them well. Heights suck (in general though, on IE and NS)
> That's just it. Why should you have to hold down shift? It also
I never have to leave Netscape to update a page. Maybe it is a difference in our caching system? (Mac/Win or Home/Uni, I don't know)
I know that I use a proxy server for everything.
> It is true that Microsoft likes to throw in a few new tags now
Hmmm. We must read different books, because I can safely say that all the books I read say that NS holds better :-) I do think though that ALL browsers should be FORCED to conform to ALL standards, and creating new tags should have to be approved through the W3C, and added to the next update of the HTML Language.
> Hrm... to the letter? I was hearing that there are some rather
No, it will support everything apparently. Right now it doesn't (I think the latest is iCab 1.7 and there are quite a view things missing, like Java support.
> If MS didn't already have a monopoly, Netscape would be the ones
I'm sorry if my words came over wrong, I am not saying which of NetScape and Microsoft I prefer, but I do think that they might have some bias over platforms, and that programs may render and operate differently on different platforms.
I just realised who I was talking to as well. How's HaloNews coming along? Any more big scoops coming our way?
