Macintosh OS X
Macintosh OS 9
- Previously we recommended Netscape 7.0 for Mac PowerPC, but this software is now difficult to obtain if you do not already have it on your computer. If you are using Mac OS 9 and do not have Netscape 7, then use Internet Explorer 5.2.
The following browsers can only view the site in basic HTML mode: Opera versions prior to 8.0, Netscape 6, IE on Macintosh. Basic HTML mode will provide you with a simplified (though less attractive) interface that works on any browser, with almost all of the functionality.
Our web design strategy is to stick with standards as much as possible while providing appropriate functionality. Although web standards are well known and codified, different browsers interpret some of the rules more or less strictly. You can check our adherence to standards for HTML and CSS at the sites below. Note that some code has been purposefully included to work in non-standards compliant browsers and will fail validation. This is normal and may or may not indicate intentional behavior of the site.
