    Default Did Netscape....

    shoot themselves in the foot? I am viewing some sites in IE that use javascript but when I view the same pages in netscape 6.01 the menus and rollovers will not work. Has anyone else encountered this problem and what did they do to rectify the problem when developing?

    More than likely the site developers shot themselves in the foot in their browser detection routines. They are probably parsing out the navigator.appName instead of testing for the DOM capabilities. A better way to to accomplish this is to test for either document.all or document.layers and then give the user the appropriate client-side code.
