I think Greg is asking if DreamWeaver or FrontPage or ANY similar
tools for making web sites such that said web sites are universally
compatible with all browsers.

   Ok, is their any kind of web site programming, that is universal to
 all browsers that may be used on all currently used operating

Or is their no such thing? but if their is such a thing why not use
that and just stick with it?

    Not sure what you are asking for here.

All browsers read (X)HTML, this is not OS dependant. Page data.

All "modern" browsers read CSS, OS independant. Page Layout.

"Most" modern browsers read Javascript, OS independant but user
switchable. Page programming language.

"Most" modern browsers allow Flash and Java, OS independant, but must
be downloaded by user. Object programming languages.

Server side scripting, (ASP, CGI or PHP for instance) is not OS,
browser or user dependant. Page generating Languages.

If you were clearer in your request more help could be forthcoming.


The best answer i can give is, build standards compliant HTML4.01 Strict
code then apply fixes only where needed. The more complex your page, the
more fixes need applying. Internet Explorer will generally require more
fixes than all other browsers combined.


That was not what he ment by "programming" - what he ment was *software* or
web creation tool.  In other words SeaMonkey Composer - it should produce
valid code all the time.
