well, many of the newly branded browsers are really just skins on 
top of IE, or in some cases Mozilla... given that, just keep the core 
browser sans branding skin and you should be all set...

as for AOL, i have access to some installs, same with WebTV, and 
yes, i do test...

ultimately you'll get a good feel for what works and where it 
works... a lot of the problems will fall away...

there's a handy, if a bit outdated, article at evolt.org by our own 
eearily prolific marting burns:

just use their core engine for testing... IE or Mozilla...
