browsers that don't support CSS

P: n/a
Hi,

are the browsers that some people use that don't support CSS, other than
the obvious ones? I don't mean fully support to every bell and whistle,
just some support is enough as my CSS is pretty simple. Currently on my
pages all colors are set from CSS only, I want to know if it's worthwhile
to set the colors in HTML too.

No, it isn't worth it. All the popular browsers support basic
functionality like changing text color (they have for generations).

Users may turn off stylesheets. But if they are that determined to see
the page their own way, chances are they don't want your HTML color
attributes either.

One reason CSS is the way we do it now is that it's easy to shut off. If
Aunt Maizy can't read colored text on a colored background, she can make
it black on white rather easily.

So using HTML style is totally against the spirit of CSS. The only
presentation-oriented HTML I use now are the dimensions of an image and
adding borders to a table. Those are added only to make the unstyled
version load better in the first case and read easier in the second case.
