15. Testing Your Site > 15.2. Check Browser Support

Check Browser Support

As noted early in this book, different browsers don’t always display HTML in the same way. What’s worse, older browsers don’t even understand a lot of the code that Dreamweaver can produce, because Dreamweaver may conform to HTML or CSS standards that were developed only in recent years.

The best way to ensure that visitors see your site the way you intend it is to frequently preview your pages in as many browsers on as many computers as possible. In this way, you can identify and fix problems early.

But if you don’t happen to have old computers with old browsers lying around your basement, Dreamweaver can identify elements of a page that won’t work in older browsers, or that might be supported by only a single browser. For example, the <layer> tag works only in Netscape 4, while the <marquee> tag is specific only to Internet Explorer.
