"Testing on Different Browsers problem"

Hello,

I have created a system based on Servlets. I tested GUI components while developping the system on IE. But now I am forced
to test the system in several other browsers including firefox and netscape. Many of the gui components looks good
on firefox, except for hew hitches and misplacings. But netscape creates a lot of problems on GUI components.

Is there anyway (method) that I can make them work (GUI component placing etc) without making whole scale changes and
gurantee that the look will be the same in all browsers?

Not guarantee, no...

I assume you are using CSS?

I'm afraid you have to do the testing yourself :-(

I have osx, linux and windows machines on my desktop for this purpose...  Though I believe there are companies who will render your pages on multiple configurations and show you the screenshots (for money)

Can you give us a small example of a component you've done which looks good on IE, but rubbish on Netscape?

It's not really just a component. It's full pages with multiple components. The placements
go berserk.

OK. You mentioned CSS.  What's that means. Does it mean that CSS takes care of this whole thing?

As a matter of fact, I do not use CSS in there. Is that the problem you think?

Again, can you give an example?  Then I can see if we can organise it a bit better so it works across browsers better?

No, CSS is one way of doing it...  Tables are another...  But it tends to be easier to quickly "tweak" CSS than tables...

May be you are using CSS. Just search for .css from the view source of your page.
