    Something that I feel is an important topic is the issue of compatability between as many sites with browsers as possible. Could everyone detail what the minimum specs specs they design for are?

    I'll start, when I am building a site for a client I usually have to stick to my minimum specs which are:

    Browsers: IE3 -> Mozilla3->
    HTML: Version 4.0 but I try to not differ far away from 3.2.
    CSS: Externally linked style sheets that do not include any DIVs or SPANs.
    Javascript: I always try to keep use of Javascript down to a minimum because it slows a lot of computers down.
    server side scripting I don't do applets but I do use PHP and mysql.

    I always try to view my sites from as many angles as possible but I've found the best way is to check them with before going live with online validators like that at:
    www.anybrowser.com/validateit.html

    Please do post up your individual specs that you design for as I'm sure its something from which many people including myself could benefit.

    Browsers: depends on the target market of the client.
    HTML: depends on the browsers (HTML 4.0 isn't compatible with IE3 / NS4)
    CSS: again, depends on the browsers
    JavaScript: I use it as much as possible when going backwards compatible, to try to give me as much functionality as I can get with the older browser.
    [bDOM[/b]: depends on browsers
    Server Side Scripting: Applets are not server side, they're client-side. Since what happens on the server has no effect on the client, I don't consider it when working out compatibility issues.
