No. There are many pitfalls (some subtle, some not) involved with
writing script for NS and IE (and Opera and Safari and Firefox and...).

I see, lucily i test in opera firefox netscape and IE,

the reason i asked is that i wrote all my scripting and it worked in IE then
i found errors popping up in netscape so i fixed then errors and all was
still good in IE.

mind you im not using any real sophisticated scripting
