THe general aspect of the answer has been discussed (sometimes in detail) in several threads already on this board. With a little reading, you'll pick up all kinds of information about this.

Generically speaking, if you code to standards, you'll be close. After that, it because a matter of tweaking and seeing how it looks in various browsers.

Mozilla Firebird, and Netscape 7.1 are free - just go to the sites, download them and install them. Opera can be downloaded for free, but you have to pay the registration fee to lose the ads.

Are you not abale to download Mozilla or Netscape? They are both free and I doubt anyone would waste the type to set something up like icapture, since they are easily accessible.

Download them. It's pretty painless and you'll thank yourself later.

The only way to be truly cross-browser compatible is to completely seperate your data from your presentation. For example, keep all your news articles in a SQL server like MySQL and use a glue language like PHP or Perl to generate HTML content specific to the requesting user-agent. Better yet... do what ATNO says and stick with the standards. If web masters did that 100% of the time, this thread wouldn't exist. :-)
