    Default Does Java provide more consistent browser display than XHTML + CSS + Javascript?

    Hi,

    Could anyone familiar with developing GUIs using either
    (1) Java, and
    (2) XHTML+CSS+Javascript
    comment as to which of these two solutions provides less variation in look and feel across different modern browsers?

    I'm looking to develop a GUI than has minimal variation between browsers. I'm not familiar with Java much. I see there are a zillion flavors of Java. Any one flavor provide more of an advantage regarding consistency than another?

    Thanks in advance, Gkk

    Java has nothing to do with the Browser.

    Either you will be making an Applet, in which case the browser is only a way to access the app, or you will be using Servlets/JSPs which do nothing more (from the browsers point of view) than produce (X)HTML+CSS+Javascript.

    Thanks, Then of the three options below, which produces the most consistent GUI appearance among various users across the internet?

    (1) (X)HTML+CSS+Javascript
    (2) Java Servlets/JSPs
    (3) Java Applet

    Since Servlets/JSPs produce (X)HTML+CSS+Javascript, do (1) and (2) then have the exact same issues concerning consistent appearance? -Gkk

    Aargh. Who cares? If your CSS is properly defined and structured the stuff will be "acceptable" on all browsers. It may not look 100% the same, but it will be close enough. And there are other problems with applets.

    What do you think? HTML is HTML, right? How it got produced doesn't make an iota of difference to the browser, now does it?
