Description

Mapbuilder, our current web mapping client, uses the browser to do XSLT transforms on the client side. A number of browsers do not allow XSLT to be accessed from javascript, most notably Safari, Opera and Konqueror.

See http://developer.apple.com/internet/safari/faq.html#anchor21

This is a fundamental problem and the mapbuilder developers have stated that they have no plans to support browsers without javascript XSLT.

We have two options to remedy this:

- Switch to a different web mapping client
- Detect the browser and alert the user when their browser is not compatible (and don't display the broken map of course).

History
