One thing to do is to make your site STRICT XHTML compliant. Although it
means your current CSS Styling will be read differently, it does at least
offer a little more compatibility. 
I have found you can get even the most complex sites to render CSS the same
with a little patience.

I want my site to be supported at least by Internet Explorer and Netscape.

I'm using CSS but the problem is that the result is opposite from one
navigator to an other. For example the 
code below gives an horizontal menu with left and right borders in IE6.2
with no borders in IE4 and is displayed 
in a vertical strange manner in NE4.5 and NE4.7.

So please if you know about online guides specific to netscape and others
specific to Internet explorer let me 
know. This way i can write two codes; each one for a navigator. Or if there
is a site which gives only the 
common things but can do the same results.

An other question is why i have a left border displayed instead of:
   div.banner a:first-child {   border-left: none;}

Here is the code:



div.banner {
  text-align: center;
  background: #7093DB;
  height: 2em;
div.banner p {
  margin-top: 0.5em;
  margin-bottom: 0.5em;

div.banner a {
   border-left-style: solid;
   border-left-width: thin;
   padding-left: 0.5em;
   padding-right: 0.5em;
   color: black;

div.banner a:first-child {
   border-left: none;

div.banner a:link { color: black }
div.banner a:visited { color: white }
div.banner a:hover { background: #5959AB; color: white }


<div class="banner">
<a href="#">menu 1</a>
<a href="#">menu 2</a>
<a href="#">menu 3</a>
<a href="#">menu 4</a>
<a href="#">menu 5</a>
<a href="#">menu 6</a>
