View Full Version : browsers that don't support DHTML
11-18-2004, 12:25 AM
Any advice on writing alternative code for an older browser? I used one of the scripts provided on this site, one that basically created a DHTML scrollable frame, but when the browser doesn't support it the text spills all down the page and looks awful. Can I write something where users with older browsers will just see a simple text message with a link to an alternative page to view the contents?

The real question you have to ask yourself/client is what percentage of the market are you aiming at with this extra work. Most users etc have upgraded so the percentage on old browsers etc is very small. Personally I would not worry about it... rgds,Simonf

Most users always want the latest and greatest incarnations of Windows, so they usually have browsers capable. I should imagine only 2-6% of users have DHTML incapable browsers.

Yes, but that doesn't make the script work - there's nowt we can do about that.
