I've found the best approach is to make liberal use of http://validator.w3.org/ -- if your HTML validates correctly according to which ever standard you apply, and similarly if your CSS validates correctly as CSS 2.0 then you should get a pretty similar result in virtually all browsers. Use HTML Tidy (ports: www/tidy-devel) to clean up your HTML automatically, and strongly prefer CSS over in-line formatting as tidy steers you towards. One thing to watch out for though is an important difference between the XHTML 1.0 standard and the HTML 4.01 standard (http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/) XHTML 1.0 is an XML language and should be served using the 'application/xml+xhtml' MIME type, unlike HTML 4.01 which should be served as 'text/html' (http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/NOTE-xhtml-media-types-20020801/) I've found that this can make quite a difference to the way a page is rendered in FireFox. The HTML 4.01 standard is probably your best bet for maximum interoperability with all sorts of different desktop browsers, whereas XHTML is better if you need access by stuff like Mobile Phones or text-to-speech systems for the blind.
