Visual Basic .NET: Netscape Ugliness
From: Bryan Lamb 6/10/2002 5:42:21 PM

Hi all,

I'm a bit surprised that I don't see a bit more traffic on the groups about this subject... but maybe that is a prime indicator that I am doing something wrong.

I'd like to hear about others' experiences of viewing their .NET webforms apps on Netscape 6 and earlier. As far as I can see, things look pretty grim. I'm not doing anything crazy... just using the various drag/drop/configure/code server controls (text boxes, labels, datalists, datagrids) that VS .NET so graciously provides.

VS .NET subsequently adds in all sorts of non-compliant HTML attributes like MS_POSITIONING, LEFT-MARGIN, BORDER, etc... and when I try to use BG colors and borders on labels... they appear transparent when viewed on NS.

Additionally, it doesn't appear that the CSS font settings are obeyed, and text boxes tend to shrink down to a smaller width.

What gives?

I tried to set the "Target Schema" project setting to Nav 4.0 but it didn't seem to make a difference. Am I the only one having problems making a site look respectable in NS... or am I just the only one TESTING it :-)
