CSS in AWeb - is it possible?

I'm running AWeb on an emulated Amiga for browser compatibility checking purposes (I need to ensure Dream17 and Jump Leads can be read by those few people who still browse the webnet on a physical Amiga) and I'm currently unable to process CSS stylesheets, resulting in a lot of very grey, very bland-looking websites.

Well, I won't stand for that, will I?

Does anyone know if there's a plug-in or something which will enable CSS? I seem to recall stumbling across something purporting to be such a plugin a while back but it didn't work.

No, AWeb and IBrowse too does not support CSS nor any plugin is available. There is a basic port of OWB but has many other problems. So all in all don't use CSS.

Don't use CSS. CSS, being something out there on the vast majority of the Intertubes.

Well that sucks.

Or alternatively: use CSS and sod the Amiga browsers which are hopelessly out of date.

As Amiga browsers get more and more out of date the development and design overhead gets greater. It's got to the stage where an Amiga site would have to be developed twice; once for 99% of browsers which support standards and modern features and again for a the other 1% with Amiga browsers. The 1% is higher than normal (and comes from the Abime stats) because it's the Amiga scene but it's still a tiny percentage.

CSS, AJAX, Javascript GUIs and Javascript tools such as TinyMCE are now quite standard features and implementing alternatives for outdated browsers is beyond the means of most of us for spare time projects!

VNC works well on powerful Amiga's. Easy to open a web-browser which is actually on a remote machine ;-)

The best browser for the amiga with a 68k cpu is Netcape 4.x under Mac emulation

I don't know if support CSS but support an advanced javascript and I think is 95% compatible with websites today

laser, if you can post how you got your Mac emu to share your Amiga connection, I would be very grateful...

I use Fusion and my TCP stack is MiamiDX.

FWIW I went with an "old fashioned" table based layout for my site as I was getting 3-5% hits from IBrowse, which is more than I get from Opera. My goal was to have the site look at least halfway reasonable in IBrowse but add things with CSS and javascript to improve the experience for more modern clients.
