    One of our clients wants a web application. Several offices (worldwide
    distributed) only have internet explorer 4.0.

    Are we facing problems when we develop an ASP.NET application for them? And
    if so, are they showstoppers or are there workarounds?

  2. You're only facing problems if you try to use HTML elements that are not
    supported by that browser.

  3. If you stick to the .NET controls, you should not have a problem. The main
    gotchas with IE 4.0 are moving into heavy DHTML or working wtih XML in the
    browser. I would still test everything with IE 4.0, which means setting up a
    windows 98 box(?), but you should not have a lot of problems.

    Work primarily with post back rather than trying to set up hierarchical data
    grids, as you might end up with a gotcha here.

  4. Hi Jan

    On all Microsoft Operating systems, Microsoft® Internet
    Explorer 5.01 or later are required.

    This is minimum requirement.

    Don't forget to the the project setting "Target schema"
    under "Designer Defaults" to Netscape Navigator 4.0 to
    ensure v4 browser level compatibility. Please note that
    this doesn't stop you breaking compatibility, however,
    the ASP.NET controls use this setting to guage what HTML
    to generate.
