Im looking for a site or reference where I can learn javascript for MSIE, Netscape, Opera, Konq. and Mozilla. I know Javascript, but even going with what the W3C says doesnt always work. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can obtain such materials? Thanks

Since you already know Javascript I think the best you could do is to install all your target browsers on your computer(s) and practice on them.
At work I have IE5.5, MZ1.1b, NN6, NN4.02 on my WIN2K PC and IE4.5, IE5.0, NN4.5 on a MAC nearby, I used to have another PC with IE3.0 and NN3.0.
I must say that having to release some sites working on these browsers is a good way to learn quickly.

If you still need some url, check the classics :

and so on...

hope that helps

I've started developing mozilla (even though IE is my main browser) I've found that if I develop towards that I'm gonna hit most DOM compliant browsers with slight tweaking (well except for NN4 which at this point really almost requires it's own JS implementation) Opera and Konq will still choke sometimes though since Konq is working hard to be DOM compliant it's getting much better. Most issues there will be with the browser more than your code. Actually on the same lines Opera 7 is a whole rewrite of the Opera engine with standards support being a main goal.

Don't know if it will help, but Petskull posted an interesting link.
Haven't had much time to go over it but you can check out that posting here

The guys at have some good articles and are working well with DOM compliant CSS and JavaScript.

Also, the 4th edition of O'Reillys JavaScript: The Definitive Guide has a comprehensive listing of DOM objects and methods etc, although there are hardly any examples in there, which makes understanding the methods a little difficult.
