Mozilla/ NS 6 supports the W3C DOM and associated specs pretty much to the
letter. It does not support the old NS 4 layers, nor IE's strange
microsoftish mutations/extensions (as in embrace-and-extend) of the w3c
specs. If you use the w3c specs all the way through, it will work perfectly
on Mozilla, and pretty much perfectly on IE.
Personally, I hate sites that use browser-detection code - particularly ones
which test for either IE or Netscape, and idiotically lock you out if you're
using something like Konqueror. Then what happens is that most
Konqueror/Opera users set their browsers to identify as IE, which leads to
the site admins getting inflated usage figures for IE, which leads them to
shove in even more IE-specific wierdness. Aargh!
They should just follow the w3c specs, and send the damn data.
