If a warning appears at the top of ned Productions pages which links to this page, then your web browser does not support certain features that this web site uses. This table helps you to understand what items are missing in order of best browser compatibility downwards - however that this web site is still fully HTML 2.0 compliant ie; it is still viewable on the original CERN www browser!

The template page which forms the basis of making each page here complies with the HTML 4.0 Transitional standard. You can check any of our pages for compliance using the HTML validation service.

Web Browser Missing elements
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or 6 None, this site is optimised for viewing by any fully HTML 4.0 Transitional compliant web browser.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 Page takes a long time to load (no support for one-pass HTML 4.0 tables)
Microsoft Internet Explorer 3 Auto-highlighting hypertext links when the mouse moves over them; no Cascading Style Sheet support and hence navigation bar isn't in Helvetica (or any sans-serifed) font and body text doesn't have leading of 25%; also there is no watermark as this requires style sheets.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 2 As for MSIE 3 but also: "Loading page tables" notification message to alert the user to a potential wait before the page fully downloads; auto-highlighting hypertext links when the mouse moves over them
Netscape Mozilla v0.9.9 Page watermark in wrong position (fault in CSS support)
Konqueror (KDE 3.0) "Loading page tables" notification message to alert the user to a potential wait before the page fully downloads isn't invisible (not all CSS is implemented). Otherwise works well.
Opera 6.0
Netscape Navigator 6 PR1 Navigation bar style (Helvetica) not applied; page watermark in wrong position (fault in CSS support)
Netscape Navigator 4.x As for Navigator 6 but with corrupted fonts; watermark isn't fixed; "Loading page tables" notification message to alert the user to a potential wait before the page fully downloads; auto-highlighting hypertext links when the mouse moves over them
Netscape Navigator 2 As for Navigator 4. You'd think they'd have got it right by version 4, wouldn't you!
Original Netscape Navigator As for Navigator 4 but also none of the Javascript stuff works or image maps. This doesn't affect much content mind you, more natty things like countdown indicators and such and some clickable images aren't clickable - however, there is always an alternative link that can be clicked nearby
WebTV "Loading page tables" notification message to alert the user to a potential wait before the page fully downloads; auto-highlighting hypertext links when the mouse moves over them; page looks very squashed horizontally as WebTV has very big text on a very small screen. Still readable though.
Non tables-capable browser Black bar seperating navigation bar and page text; "Loading page tables" notification message to alert the user to a potential wait before the page fully downloads; auto-highlighting hypertext links when the mouse moves over them; the navigation bar appears as a set of links at the top of the page and all the page formatting is missing
Lynx Seeing as Lynx doesn't output graphics and there is no mouse, all the navigation links appear at the top, there is no page formatting and of course, no images to click upon
Original CERN WWW browser Pretty much only the textual content of the site is available. The site is still usuable though, but it can't be called pleasant to use or view or even navigate - more due to the nacky nature of the original browser. Try getting Lynx at least please!

Just for reference, this website uses the following HTML features added since HTML 1.0 (in order of date of addition):

  1. HTML 4.0 Transitional compliance
  2. Style attributes and stylesheets
  3. Javascript
  4. Tables, and setting the background of cells (something even the latest Netscape browser can't do properly :( )
  5. Image maps
  6. Lists with extended attributes
  7. Setting of page background colour and setting of text colour
  8. Forms
  9. Images
