I just finished working on a site, and was informed that the site is not working properly with Netscape.  What can I do to the site so that it becomes compatible with all Browsers (Ineternet Explorer, Netscape, AOL, etc.)?

You may need to check your scripting language (javascript, vbscript, etc) As some of the javascript only can run within IE browser, and vbscript cannot run on NS, etc.

Ok you're  using dreamweaver right?
I'll assume you're using DWMX or DWMX 2004

In dreamweaver, you can automatically check all your code to see if it is compatible with different browsers:

1. Press F7 to show the 'results' bar
2. Click 'target browser check'
3. Click the play icon, and click settings. Set it up so the browsers your site to look right on are selected.
4. Set "Show" to "Site Report"
5. Click the play icon again, and click "check target browsers for entire site"

This should give you a nice report on what needs fixing up in your site. Note that there are always *some* things wrong with your site, so the ultimate test is to simply get a copy of netscape, install it, and check that it looks ok.

The main browsers you want to check are IE, Firefox and Mozilla, being the most popular nowadays.
