What to Take Away from This Chapter

  • Many different browsers are available and are in use.

  • Each different browser renders HTML slightly differently, and these differences need to be compensated for in your code.

  • It is possible to include information in a page for all browsers and their different ways of working, because a browser will ignore any code it doesn't understand.

  • With complex page designs, it is sometimes necessary to build different versions of a page for different browsers, although this has a maintenance overhead.

  • JavaScript is the language of choice for scripting within web pages.

  • Different browsers support different versions and interpretations of JavaScript.

  • Where different code is needed for different types of browsers, you can use some simple JavaScript to detect the browser and thus choose which piece of code to implement.

  • Of all the many different browsers available and in use, Internet Explorer has the largest market share, and this is expected to increase.

  • It is important to turn on the accessibility features in Dreamweaver MX and make a conscious decision not to use them if there is an exception, instead of having to remember all the extra steps needed to make a site accessible to all.
