I want to be able to view my site in different browsers such as netscape, interent explorer 6 and mozilla. what html or javascript do i need to add to do so?
i know that some code can cause security issues but is there anything safe out there?

I am unsure about whether there is 'code' available to help with this but as a rule of thumb we generally advise members to build their site for the most popular browsers (IE, FF). Netscape is not one of these. It has a minute corner of the market which is reducing rapidly and some reckon it will disappear all together pretty soon.

There isn't code you can add to magically make it work perfect in all broswers. The closest added some javascript can do is if you make a version that works perfect in IE, and a version that works perfect in FF, and have javascript check which broswer a user is using and display the appropriate site.

That solution isn't a very good one, you just have to play with the webpage until its satifactory in both broswers. Sometime this is required othertimes the webpage works just fine in both right after you make it.

One of the nice additions to the recent release of Blue Voda 9 is that you can configure your web builder to allow you to view in any and all browsers you have on your computer without leaving the web builder to open another browser ...

I love this VodaHost!! Excellent feature!
