Web interoperability is producing web pages viewable with standard compatible web browsers , various operating systems such as Windows , Macintosh and Linux , and devices such as personal computers (PCs), PDAs , mobile phones and tablets based on the latest web standards .


The term was originated by the Web Interoperability Pledge, [1] which is a promise to adhere to current HTML recommendations as promulgated by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The WIP was not a W3C initiative. but it was started by ZDNet AnchorDesk

This outcome Was Known cross by browsing in browser war entre Internet Explorer and Netscape . Windows Internet Explorer was the dominant browser after that, Mozilla Firefox , Mozilla Firefox , Opera and Safari have supported web standards. Because of backward compatibility of Internet Explorer, Many web-have supported non-standard HTML pages and tags DOM handling script yet as well technical platform-dependent Such As ActiveX . These are very harmful for Web accessibility and device independence .


  • Structural and semantic markup with XHTML
  • CSS-based layout with layout elements such as position and float.
