Compatibility Master Table

Hell is other browsers — Sartre

This page has been translated into Romanian and Russian.

My Compatibility Tables are by far the most popular resource on this site. Here you find the master table that contains links to the individual tables.

HTML tag manipulation Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes To be tested

Though HTML documents are XML documents, they have a number of special features that the average XML document doesn't have. The W3C DOM HTML module defines these special cases and how to deal with them.

Here you find details on getting and setting properties of HTML elements, such as className or id. The innerHTML property is of prime importance to any DOM script.

Stylesheet manipulation Alternative Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes To be tested

Style sheets are part of the document, too (sort of). The W3C DOM CSS module gives access to style sheets and allows you to change a style sheet.

This module contains some browser incompatibilities, but they are of the cute kind. W3C and Microsoft define some different methods and arrays, but some simple object detection allows you to evade these problems.

Element dimensions, mouse coordinates, and miscellaneous Incomplete Almost Yes Almost Almost Almost Almost To be tested

This specification contains several age-old properties that all browser support but that never have made it to a W3C specification yet.
