    browser compatability?

    ummmm, how do you make your site so that it recognizes the browser the user is using and loads the correct site for the correct browser. lets say i have a site that only really runs with ie 5.5+ or netscape 6+. how do i make it so that if someone from something lower than that goes to like a simpler page the the browser can recognize?

    I wouldn't recommend redirection - it's disconcerting for users and tedious to maintain multiple pages.

    The ideal, I think, is to design pages that mostly work cross-browser, and then use javascript to selectively write bits of it for certain browsers.

    Either way, start with a generic sniffer script such as this one
