I just got done learning css and while i like it many features are not supported in Netscape 4.x I am thinking I should continue using html 3.2 for a bit longer till more netscape users have upgraded to netscape 6 any opinions?

Amen, I use client side scripting as little as possible. even applets dont always work right in all browsers. so I much prefer doing dynamic stuff on the server(especially since my server only gets a half dozen visitors on a good day) but css is part of html 4 and supposedly a static thing. still thanks for opinion. I think I might use style sheets on my next site but then again i might not...for sure im thinking twice about redoing my last job using css for "practice" why practice something im not going to use? any counter opinions?
Use HTML 4.0 and CSS. "But that might break compatability!" you cry. Well, if you're seriously worried about compatability, write your website in text format and have visitors type in new addresses! If your visitors choose not to use a browser that supports the current HTML standard (and 4.0 is by no means high tech -- it's been around for quite a while), then that is the visitors' problem. Better yet, use XHTML. It works on today's browsers and you can be sure it will work on tomarrow's.
David, I hear that! i dont cater to old browsers at all but many people still use Netscape 4.7 I agree 100% CSS only works in IE and netscape 6 or better though BTW: i like the xhtm standard...its about time [This message has been edited by Randall Twede (edited August 08, 2001).]
