I created a website that looks great on IE7 and Netscape 7, but how can I make it look that good in earlier versions of Netscape? Specifically, Netscape 4.76? Is there no way to see the tempus san itc unless the user has it installed locally? Even the horizontal rules are not centered as they are supposed to be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've attached my XHTML code and the .css page.

Thanks in advance,

nicomen

You can't using css, and it is not worth trying.

The best thing you can do is turn all css off, and let N4 users get plain text.

I thought that was going to be the answer. Then how do you get people to see style, like this www.gizwic.com where it says "Welcome to Gizwic.com just to the left of the robot?

Thanks,

That site is using tables and images, of which both are supported by N4, and they have very simple CSS and only 4.

Welcome to Gizwic.com is an image.

You could also use the @import trick to channel Netscape 4 it's own CSS. Here's the lowdown: http://www.ericmeyeroncss.com/bonus/trick-hide.html
