ClioPatria as a web-platform is not browser specific. Some of the backoffice facilities (i.e., the ClioPatria web frontend) might not work on all browsers. Development is based on Firefox (currently 3.6). In general, the ClioPatria web frontend uses HTML that requires little styling and is made prettier using CSS. There are three areas where it uses more advanced technology.
- The ClioPatria menu is based on extensive use of CSS.
- The search fields use autocompletion based on the YUI (2.7) AJAX framework.
- The context graphs (see howto/ExploreRDF.txt) use SVG, embedded
using the HTML
objectelement. The setting graphviz:format can be used to change this into HTML5 using the canviz library, but canviz is slower, does not support all graph features and is not very portable over browsers either.
