[thelist] upsizing to/developing for SQL server

I'm looking for some opinions on the best procedure to take.  I have a
client who host their own site and have an NT4/IIS4 and SQL server installed
on-site.  Unsure exactly what server spec (official response was 'a big
one') but I'm guessing it's that SQL server is one version back from the
most recent, 6.5??

I'm trying to decide on the best method of developing a fairly
straight-forward database for them.  First though is access and them
transport to their server and upsize OR install the 120 day trail version of
SQL server(msde) i've got on a separate box and develop it that way.  The
problem I'm having with this is how do I then transport the database to
their server??  Not having used SQL server before and being on a very tight
schedule I haven't got much time to 'play' with this so if anyone has any
experience with the upsizing tools, good or bad, or would do things
differently I'd appreciate hearing about it

Subject: Re: [thelist] NS 6 - comments anyone?

>From a purely web development standpoint, NS 6 is
about 500% better than IE 6 when it comes to rendering
css1/css2/xhtml 1.0/xhtml1.1/XSL correctly (without
starting a regious debate here, my only say on the
matter for all your IE ppl is try using
style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto" to
center a BLOCK element (it won't work in IE).  This is
css1 (which someone IE6 fully supports but can't do
this, do I need to go on, if so, I have a whole
shopping cart of css that IE6 still fails at)).  If
you use the preloader in in NS 6.2, it actually loads
quicker than IE6 on my w2k box (pages and the actually
browser), its has ~ the equivelent memory footprint of
IE6 (if not smaller most of the time.  Currently
iexplorer.exe is taking up 6 MB more than ns 6.2).

The only issue I would have came across is it still
like to freeze up on java appletts.

Would like to say though, that if you like using
Netscape, just give it up and use Mozilla.  Netscape
is build on mozilla branches anyways Mozilla put out
version updates way more than Netscape (night builds,
montly *releases*).
