It's called crossbrowser compatibilty. And it pretty much sucks all around. The mozilla based browsers (i.e. NS 7 +) display code a bit more accurately according to standards, but nobody uses them much because IE is easier. However, IE overlooks many coding issues and displays them properly whereas Netscape doesn't. Netscape's big thing is with tables. If your tables are coded improperly, IE will probably display them correctly but Netscape won't. Another thing is Margins. Netscape will display those properly but IE won't. It's a no win situation.

basically if your site verifies CSS and XHTML 1.0 over at w3schools, then it will show up almost 95% correctly in both browsers. The problems I came accross where acceptable CSS which wasn't recognized by NS7+. Basically recode it to standards, then do a google search for things that aren't appearing right, and see if they are compatible with netscape.
