General Information !!!!
Operating Systems - Windows 98 is compliant, but Windows 95 and 3.1 are not. (Patches can be downloaded from Microsoft's Web Site to fix this problem.)
Apple says that all of its computers made since 1984 are compliant.
Web Browsers - Netscape Communicator 4.0 and beyond are fully compliant; so are Netscape Navigator 2.02 and 3.0.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 for Windows and Mac are fully compliant. Internet Explorer 3.0 for Windows has some minor problems.
