You have been directed you to this page because your browser does not support accepted web standards. Read on in order to learn more about upgrading your browser.
What “web standards?”
The ones created by the World Wide Web Consortium – the people who invented the Web itself. The W3C created these standards so the Web would work better for everyone. New browsers, mainly, support these standards; old browsers, mainly, don’t.
What can I do?
You might consider upgrading your browser. Doing so will improve your web experience, enabling you to use and view sites as their creators intended.
The following browsers support numerous web standards including CSS, XHTML, and the DOM (a universal means of controlling the behavior of web pages):
- IE6 or higher for Windows
- IE5 or higher for Macintosh
- Netscape 6 or higher for all platforms
In addition, the lightweight Opera browser offers excellent support for CSS and XHTML, though it does not as yet support the DOM.
