OUCS table-free compatibility chart


Contents



1. Compatibility chart for the new OUCS Home Page table-free style page.

The chart lists the web browsers that have been tested with our new table-free page style and under what operating system. As with all CSS styled pages rendering of the page can vary according to how closely the vendor has implemented CSS standards. Some variation is expected Where this is considered a minor problem, it has been ignored. Where greater errors are noted which might affect users it has been denoted as 'errors'. Where the page is unusable it has been listed as 'No'. Such browsers will be referred to a different xsl stylesheet instead.

If you use a browser not listed below, please send us a screen grab along with browser and platform details. If you find that pages do not render properly in your browser, regardless of our chart designation, please send a screen grab and all browser/platform details to:
webmaster@oucs.ox.ac.uk.
