Browser Compatibility is quite possibly the most infuriating and frustrating subject for any web developer, this is compounded when the developer is trying to provide support for ‘What You See Is What You Get’ content editing. This document will discuss the issues surrounding online content editing, web browser compatibility and how they affect the dynamic page builder product that is provided commercially by Dynamic Solutions Development Limited. It is an evaluation of the main product as well as a comparison against other products and solutions that are available today. The original product will be compared against other commercially available products as well as current thinking and theory. Content editing has evolved away from products that must be installed on a machine somewhere in the office and there are now many alternatives. All of these are provided through the use of a web browser, this is largely due to the fact that almost every office and home has a machine with some form of browser and that web browsers are extremely portable. The original product will be evaluated for functionality, compatibility and security and each area will be discussed in detail. The document will address these areas and provide some suggestions as to how they could be improved or in the case where they are not offered provided.
