From my understanding of other threads, I know that I should be viewing my website in both Internet Explorer and something else like Firefox, as I develop it. However, I have a couple of questions.

1. I am using Frontpage 2002 to development my site which allows me go back and forth between my code and what my page should look like. Can anyone tell me if what I am seeing resembles something akin to IE or some other browser, or is it just a general view?

2. Where can I get Firefox and can I still keep IE when I have it?

Many thanks!

Funny. Frontpage isn't as good as you think it is. The design view puts in its own microsoft coding and messes up pages badly in Firefox sometimes. If you page looks okay in IE but not in FF there is a good chance you have made some coding mistakes.

Yes, after viewing my page in Firefox, I notice some glaring problems. Does Firefox view Javascript differenty than IE? I am using a mouseover script as my header and navigation bar, but it does not work properly in Firefox. Any thoughts?

I have not used FrontPage in years but I'm wondering if it generates IE specific code. JScript from MS is not quite the same as javascript either.
