CF 5

A couple days ago, I posted a little conversation I had with netscape 4 while trying to fix a browser-compatibility issue. I’m happy to report that I solved this issue. And how? Well, I downloaded Macromedia’s Cold Fusion Studio 5 finally (I own a subscription to the product). It comes, like previous versions of Studio with a little function called ‘Validate code’. I had run this on the page in version 4.5.2, with no real effect. It still didn’t work in Netscape 4. I ran it again under Studio 5, and guess what? I handily listed the 58 invalid lines of code in the document, told me how they were wrong. So I went, item by item, and fixed them all (well, not all. I ignored the HTML 3.2 incompatibilities, because I don’t care about HTML 3.2 anymore). And then, with a little ‘Hey Presto!’, the page worked. Beautifully. In netscape 4, IE 6, Opera 5, netscape 6.1. So yay. And everyone, if you are looking for a kick-ass environment to develop pages it, be they static HTML, CFML, PHP, ASP or JSP, I’ll recommend Cold Fusion Studio 5. It rocks.

  1. Wow. I’m totally interested, having just spent the past several hours having cross-browser crises. Bleah. I hate ’em all, at various times. But especially NS, and now Opera’s starting to gain ground in my grouchy books too.
