Notice on browsers

The current HTML standard (the format in which WWW pages are written), XHTML 1.0, and the common standard for rendering presentation style, CSS2 (Cascading Style Sheets level 2), provide for easier writing and faster download of web pages.

However, major browser software do not fully implement either XHTML or CSS2. Over the years guide pages have been transferred from HTML versions 2 through 3.2 and 4.0 and are currently being converted to XHTML 1.0. HTML 4.0 pages were tested for display in Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape Navigator 4.5. Other browser software will not give the same display; however, since formatting mainly resides in the style sheets instead of in the HTML pages, the content display should be satisfactory. XHTML pages will only be tested with Opera and Firefox, but should for the most part work with Internet Explorer 5 and up and with Mozilla 1 and up and Netscape Navigator 4.6 and up.

The following special conditions apply with major browsers:

Whereas you can use any HTML-4 or XHTML capable browser for display, I recommend that you use Opera or Firefox for printing. Firefox 1.0 can be downloaded for free from Opera is available both as adware and by purchase.

As of June 2002, pages will be optimised for performance in Opera 7 and Firefox 1. In the meantime, occasional pages will feature undesired centering of text. No further trials will be made with Netscape or Internet Explorer.

Comments on browser compatibility as well as on anything else in the Guide will always be welcome, and bugs will be fixed as soon as reported to: Sven O Kullander.
