Design Considerations

Before you design a page, you need to take into account various factors that affect the look of your site on a browser. These factors include the type and version of the browser, the platform on which the browser runs, connection speeds, and the screen dimensions.

Browser Type and Version

Although Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are the most popular browsers today, some people might use text-only browsers. Therefore, it is always better to create cross-browser compatible sites. People also use different versions of browsers, and all features of a Web site are not supported by all versions. Whereas a feature such as Cascading Style Sheets is supported by Netscape Navigator 4.x is not supported by Netscape Navigator 3.x. To overcome such problems, a possible solution is to create cross-browser versions of those pages that contain such content. For example, if you are planning to use frames in a page, it is always better to create a framed as well as a frameless version of the page, because not all browsers support frames. When you use images in a page, always use the ALT attribute so that a text-only browser can display meaningful content in areas where it cannot display images.
