Border-Collapse, Border-Bottom, Border-Left, Border-Right & Border-Top apparently are not compatiable with NS 3-6

Hi!

I am trying to make my site more compatiable with NS.

According to NetMechanic the following statements (border-collapse, border-bottom, border-top, border-left and border-right) are not compatiable with NS 3-6:

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" style="border-collapse: collapse" width="100%" id="table1">

    <input type="text" name="Email" size="35" maxlength="255" style="color : #000000; background : #FFFFFF; border-top : 1px solid; border-bottom : 1px solid; border-left : 1px solid; border-right : 1px solid; font-family : Verdana,tahoma,Arial; font-size : 10px;"> <br>

Is there another way of doing this?

Thank you in advance.

Hi TrueBlue,

Well, for border-top, border-bottom, border-left, and border-right, you can try this:

style="border:1px solid black;border-top-width:0px;border-bottom-width:5px;"

As for border-collapse, nothing you can do there. I believe no cellpaddig and no cellmargin and no border for table (i.e. <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellmargin="0">) will come pretty close.

Zyloch

Cell borders collapsed could be established using cellspacing="1" wouldn't it?

Why in the world would you even consider doing anything to reduce the quality for the browsers that 99%+ of your user have.  Stats from w3schools say Netscrap 4 is 0.2% of market NS 3 does not have enough users to even be listed; an neither does Netscrap 6 (which support border-left etc.. but not border collapse).

That is about the same as saying you are not going to pave any roads because someone might still be using a horse to do the grocery shopping an pavement hurts their feet.  You must have a huge surplus in your development budget, if you can afford to waste more than ten seconds even thinking about support for relics from the last century.

Hi Coboldinosaur!

So what percentage use NS6?

Since NetMechanic says that the border-collapse does not work with it either.

by inferrence  less than 0.2% TrueBlue.
I second Cd's comment that NS6 compat. is a waste of your resources
BTW this is the stats Cd is talking about:
http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp
you can prob. draw your own conclusions

Cheers,

If you want to support Netscrap 6, you would have all kinds of other issues anyway.  The original delivered version, was the buggiest browser in history.  It ran up a total of over 68,000 bug reports in Bugzilla and really became the last nail in Netscaps coffin as far as browser go.  I doubt we will ever see Netscrap deliver another browser that has any impact on the market.

It is now a two-way battle between IE and Mozilla/Firefox; with Moz delivering the quality and inovation and Microslop playing catch up to try and reverse trend in market share shift.
