    When I am designing a web page I've found that I spend about 10% of my time looking on forums and webpages for various definitions and javascript/PHP tips and the other 90% trying to resolve various browser compatibility issues. So what I usually end up doing is going from forum to forum trying to find an answer. Why can't we just have an actual "Browser Compatibility Issues" forum and be done with it? A couple of cool stickies about common problems and it's downhill from there!!! yeah!!
    I know how to create an integer with Javascript and when I forget how to define arrays in PHP I'll go look at the PHP forums, but I can find that information anywhere. I really don't see this as an actual topic in any forum based website and I know I'm not the only one who has more trouble with this than anything else. Please consider what I've said seriously as it could be probably the most useful wed design forum in existance ( ).

    I always consider new forums if there is sufficient demand, as will be determined by the replies to this thread from others.

    The answer to most "Browser Compatibility Issues" question lies in errors in the CSS or the HTML. Hence the HTML, XHTML, XML and CSS forum.

    True, but arguably there are sufficient posts that fit within the subheading of `Browser Compatibility Issues' to merit some sort of separation of these posts.

    The point is to create a central location for posts concerning these problems. So that when someone comes back to the forum and searches for their "browser compatiblity" issue that's all that is returned, posts that somehow correlate to the actual topic of browser compatibility. Get it? Otherwise, you'll get XML/CSS/HTML posts on anything and everything when searching. Also, it would probably be a lot easier to get help because people who knew things about making sure Opera and Firefox cooperated well could find people that need their help a lot easier, whereas those people might not respond seeing responses on the post. I just wish someone would honestly address this issue and not expect people to have the time to google for hours and hours.

    WDF v6, inherent to its design, will solve problems like this where you need to post about multiple things simultaneously. It's still many months away, though, so you can keep talking about the idea of a new forum.

    Ok. Hopefully they'll make one of things browser compatibility so I can post about it.

    Well, `they' in this context is filburt, so I'd say there's a fair bet if the consensus is we need a new forum, you'll get a category in v6 ;-)
