Ie7 without validating
Or how can I get IE6 to run on a PC with IE7 installed?
Does anyone know of any websites that will check css on IE6 for me - for free hopefully. Then you can install Windows 2000 or XP or even Vista in a virtual machine and use it for testing.
Checking that a page “displays fine” in several contemporary browsers may be a reasonable insurance that the page will “work” today, but it does not guarantee that it will work tomorrow.
In the past, many authors who relied on the quirks of Netscape 1.1 suddenly found their pages appeared totally blank in Netscape 2.0.
Be sure not to update to IE 7 though in the virtual machine!
I would read the Microsoft (and others) data first before considering installing other software on your computer that enables installation of other versions of explorer,, I did go into this quite a lot and remember coming to the conclusion that the "only safe way" is to use the "free" virtual computer that ms offer,, hope this also helps.
This is deliberate, and doesn't imply any kind of browser bug.
Validation, as any process of debugging code, is sometimes difficult, and the vast improvements in automatic error correction has made modern browser cope very well with errors in HTML or CSS.
This makes validation seem useless or costly to many people, and the following questions (or statement) are widespread: The answer to this one is that markup languages are no more than data formats. It only takes on a visual appearance when it is presented by your browser.
Whilst Internet Explorer initially set out to be bug-compatible with Netscape, it too has moved towards standards compliance in later releases.
Validation is one of the simplest ways to check whether a page is built in accordance with Web standards, and provides one of the most reliable guarantee that future Web platforms will handle it as designed.
