NN 4

P: n/a
Ok, I saw some of my pages in NN4.01. Wow. As great as they look
in a modern browser, the CSS comes out like a slaughterhouse
accident in NN4.01.

How many users are actually still using a browser this old? Is it
worth being worried about?

If so, what kinds of things can I do to either ensure the
positioning does not ruin the user's ability to read the site, or
disallow use of a stylesheet and allow the user to see the
unpresented HTML?

When I last checked, 0.6 per cent of my site visitors used Netscape
4.x. But I'm not sure how many of those might have been search engines
in disguise.

Nevertheless, when I rebuilt my site using CSS positioning, I made a
point of making sure the site would degrade gracefully in NN4.x. This
involved breaking my style sheet into two documents, and hiding one
from NN4 using the @import feature.

Take a look at the site in NN4, and see what I mean.

As this comes up frequently, I wrote a page about it:

Hope this helps.
