Older Browser Limitations

The “Descriptions of Maryland” texts are marked up according to the W3C’s current recommendation, XHTML 1.1, with accompanying style sheets to control display. Older browsers — in particular Netscape 4.x — won’t respond to in-text navigational links and will link between pages “oddly.” They may also be unable to work with style sheets or, as in the case of obsolescent browsers such as Netscape 4.x, will render the display incorrectly.
