    In theory, if you only use controls, it should be browser independant,
    that is, it will render different code for different browser.
    But I doubt it a lot.

    You could try setting the TargetSchema to Internet Explorer 3.2/Netscape 3.0   (it's in the properties window after you select DOCUMENT)

    What could go wrong? :)

    The real incompatiability comes with the CSS VS.NET produces.

    The way i work is, create as much CSS as i possibly can in external .css files and constantly flick between browsers to make sure they both look the same.

    Good luck.

    I'm not so sure there is one....

    You need to understand *Microsoft* Visual Studio isn't going to go out of it's way to build cross-browser compliant code, why? because they obviously don't want anybody using anything but IE.

    So step 1, you need to read up on the incompatabilities between Internet explorer and mozilla, then you can understand what VS.NET produces that looks cack on mozilla and how to modify it.

    There is no "change this to that and everything will work"

    Read up on web standards, learn CSS then you'll understand what i'm talking about.

    Sorry but i can't really give you much more advice than that.
