Netscape see the "main summary page" as "a history page" BUT IE see everything correctly. We were told scripts would run on different browsers and platforms without scripting changes. I'm using IE6.0 but had to downgrade NS7.2 to 7.1 Segue said they don't support 7.2.
Segue also does not support Blue Express on XP, the list of what Segue does support is getting very small.
I recorded the window declaration file in IE6.0 and the script runs well in IE. When I run the same script in NS7.1 it finds some blank white space as my table and does not read in the table as a list of strings because the table was blank. When I do a record identifiers the table I need to read in is called something for a different page.
Whoever told you that there wouldn't have to be scripting changes has either never tried it, or they have only tried it on a very limited scope of pages such as the very basic HTML pages that are used in demos and classrooms.
In the real world there are differences.
Luckily SilkTest has a way for you to specify browser differences in the tags of your objects. Check out reading about browser specifiers in the help file.
As for the table definition getting messed up because there were blank cells goes...log the defect (as many have) and wait. Hopefully someday they will start to define tables by rows and not by columns as it is done in HTML to begin with.
You should also be aware that Navigate() needs to be used in place of LoadPage() for Netscape. Worse still, the same declarations cannot be used for IE dialogs and Netscape dialogs. I also find that SilkTest/Netscape will sometimes add a extra / to the end of links, etc. which can cause trouble.
