The results were so: MSIE 4.0 (Mac) = yes Netscape Nav. (Mac) = no MSIE 4.0 (WinNT) = no Netscape Com. (WinNT) = no I found this dissapointing; in my opinion, the browser belongs to the user, not to the web designer. It's also weird because in all the browsers you can override colors and FONTS, but not frames.
