I’m starting to redesign and add pages to this site. (not online yet – won’t be for a while – relax – LOL) For the first page I’ve worked on, I’m using a non-repeating background image as defined in a style sheet – naturally it doesn’t work right in Netscape 4.7, the background image scrolls AND the color is off. BUT it looks good in IE and Mozilla (thanks tom!) and Opera, and works in NS6.0 even if the color is still off. I mention all of this because in the past I’ve been a minimalist – using really basic designs out of (laziness to learn much about CSS and) a desire to make my web page appear ‘correctly’ to everyone who might come. But this is a problem we also ran into in the tech. writing field. How far backward compatible do you make something? How many platforms do you accomodate?
