Hello all, I hope your having a fantastic week :thumbup2:

I was practicing my website development skills, and I noticed that old browser's did not display my html files the way
my Firefox (latest version) does.. :o

So the question came up: :blink:
Do different browser read the html and css files differently?
The old IE browsers do not read the html & css files correctly...

Is there anything I can do, to prevent people with old browsers to display the html and css incorrectly if that is the case? :wink:

Thank-you guys :P

All browsers interpret web pages differently; the fact that sometimes they look the same across browsers is almost nothing short if a miracle. There is nothing you can do to prevent them looking different other than using proper syntax, and making sure your pages validate.

A great example of this can be had at http://browsershots.org

Simply plug any valid URL into the form there and, after a wait, you will start to see screenshots of how that page looks in various browsers and operating systems: everything from Flock 2.6 on Linux to IE6 on Windows to Dillo 2.0 on BSD.

One thing you might do when developing web pages is to reset the CSS. That seems to help about 90% of the issues between different web browsers. IE6 being one of the most difficult to tame but I have had good success making websites look all the same between different browsers.

Learn about resetting CSS here

A great book on website design is "Bulletproof Web Design"

Also a great tool to use to test how your website looks in different versions of IE is IETester
