Appendix D. CSS Support Chart

As we’ve seen, browser compatibility—or a lack thereof—is the biggest obstacle to adoption of CSS. This appendix provides a comprehensive guide to how the browsers have implemented support for CSS1. Check this master list to get a rough idea of how well a given property and its values are supported.

This appendix uses the following key:

Y

Yes

N

No

P

Partial

B

Buggy

Q

Quirky

“Buggy” can refer to anything from mangled display to an actual browser crash. “Quirky” means that, while the browser is technically compliant with the specification, it acts in a fashion which authors may not expect.
