I agree with all those above, like a melting pot of everything. I think you should have your sitye accesible to your target audience, i.e if they use netscape, then make it compatible, or just stick with anything as simple as text only, but overall, I agree that this is a great source for the compatibility issues

I think that you should always try to support both IE and Netscape browsers as well. If not, you'll need to specify it on your first intro page or something and live with the fact that you may not get as many visitors to your site.
Most of the code is compatible to both browsers. Personnaly I write my code directly using a text editor. Let say I'm kind of a old core writer, this way you don't have to fu.. around with all the messing up code that most WYSIWYG editors.

I'm doing my best not to be rude, but you can't spend hours designing for "everyone with every disability." Believe me, I would...but my clients wouldn't enjoy my bill for 80 hours of work so that a site works in lynx.
You have to come to your own conclusions about who you hope will visit your site, and who to leave behind. Thank god there are no laws requiring special access for people or web designers would go out of business.
On a more personal note, I'm more of a backend developer, so ASP doesn't matter what the client is, as long as data is returned to the client.

Did you check the example of an accessible page from that article GG posted? This: http://ken.me.com.au/
Strange enough it claims to validate with "RDF" and "P3P", things I've never heard of but which still have something to do with W3C. Check the RDF validating, it gives a bunch of warning messages. Oops.
