Page rendering across browsers/platforms

Posted on 2007-10-08

I run Windows XP and I use Firefox 2.2.4 as my default browser.  I work part-time as a Web Developer.

I try my best to fit all browsers and I test my sites in IE6, IE7, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Netscape (All windows versions.)

I don't have a Mac or Linux machine to test these browser on other platforms.

My question is:

Does Opera, Netscape, Firefox render the page on a Linux platform differently from a Windows Platform if using the same border?

    Konqueror 3.5
    Opera 9.23

    from Linux returned...
