Hello List,

This may seen OT, but the underlying question is valid :~)

I'm using Homesite+ to code, and want to configure the internal browser to
Mozilla, from the default ie rendering engine, but not sure about it...

1.    So, IYHOs,
        Is it better to code, then check, code some more, then check again,
using a much more standards-
        compliant browser like Mozilla, or go with ie, then tweak for the

2.    Is Mozilla more standards-complaint than the rest, or should I rely on
Opera first?

        A.    Which browser (which version too), in order of compliance,
rate first in standards.
                Is my list accurate:

                a.    Mozilla builds (1.5, 1.7b, etc)
                b.    Mozilla Firebird 0.7
                c.    Mozilla Firefox 0.8
                d.    Opera
                e.    Netscape
                f.    IE
