Hi guys!
I am looking for a place to get browser version versus HTTP version compliance. Like:
IE 5.5 -> HTTP 2.0
IE 6.0 -> HTTP 3.0
Netscape 4.9 -> HTTP 1.1

Something as official as possible so I can rely on it for my designs (I tried to find that on W3 but I couldn't...)

Thanks!

I guess you mean HTML instead of HTTP. HTTP is merely a connection protocol, while HTML is for markup. Why not just develop for HTML4.01 right away? 95% of the world population uses browsers that (more or less) fully work with HTML4.01, so why all the trouble?

Agrees

Just use HTML 4.01 or better yet, XHTML 1.1. I like my sites to be compatible for all users, but I'm not writing javascript workarounds for some who is still using Netscape4

HTTP is currently only at 1.1 which was implemented to allow for many domains hosted on a single machine afaik.
HTML you can get many versions, the more popular ones right now are HTML 4.01 (Strict|Transitional|Frameset) and XHTML 1.0 (Strict|Transitional|Frameset) and XHTML 1.1 which is similar to the XHTML 1.0 Strict, but slightly different.

BTW the next versio is XHTML 2.0 where the <img> tag will disappear to be replaced with <object> tag where you define the MIME type of the object so you can embed a wider range of items. Main problems with this though is there isnt any browser support atm and MSIE uses <object> for ActiveX controls and I cant really see them changing anything in MSIE to fit in with standards

</rant></info>

BTW best to write XHTML 1.0 or XHTML 1.1 code at the mo, as most things understand it, and it is the way of the future, so why not embrace it now :p

I was actually speaking about HTTP and not HTML. We found what we were looking for on Berkley's Univ. page.

Thx!
