Hi all,

I usually use IE 6 to view my web sites once i have deployed them. One of my
clients use apple macs. Is there anything i should be aware of when deploying
my app at their site. i hope to install it on a windows platform but client
machines at that site will be using macs to view the app through a browser -
safarir. would appreciate any thoughts on this.

thanks,
cathie

Read safari's comments about support for asp.net
http://developer.apple.com/internet/....html#anchor23

Depending on what your outputting, you may well have to render different
output for some aspects of your site when viewed from a safari browser, but
you wont know without testing.

You can get a pretty good representation of whether Safari will support your
site by using the Konquerer browser as they both use pretty much the same
rendering engine, but its not a 100% match. Test it in Mozilla, as it and
safari have very good css and xhtml support. Reduce your javascript use to
a bare minimum, safari's not that good with javascript.

However, that all said your site may be fine without doing any work to cater
for safari. Why not install a version of mac to test against using pearPC
http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/installmacos.html

As a final thing, this site lets you test against all sort of operating
systems and setups and can save a lot of time and effort.
