Netscape requires anchored GIF's to all be on one line of coding, thus: <a href="gohere.htm"><img src="image.gif" alt="[GIF]"></a>
Otherwise, it will put a little mark on the GIF to the right, or if the image
follows another image, on the left of the GIF.
Internet Explorer requires a non-breaking space ( )
between GIF's that are supposed to be separated by white space; a simple space
will not do.
Mosaic 3.0 displays a non-breaking space as an 'a' with an
acute accent for teletype text. To correct this, change the font as follows:
Choose: [View] [Options] [Preferences] [Fonts] [Default] [Teletype Font]
Then change the font from 'Terminal' to 'Courier New'
Some versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer have trouble
printing white text. Use a color="#feffff" subcommand instead of
color="white" or color="#ffffff" in a font command.
To be viewed by all browsers, use 'strong' tags instead of 'bold' and
'emphatic' tags instead of 'italic'
On pages which have a clickable GIF as a main item, use both ISMAP and USEMAP
Use alternate text on all images for text browsers
To add in-line sound to a page, use the following: <sound src="welcome.wav">
<embed src="welcome.wav" volume=100% autostart=true hidden=true>
The sound tag is recognized by Mosaic; the embed tag by Netscape and Internet
