The best thing you can do is make every attempt to code to the 
standards, and then hope that the browsers do their best to meet those 
standards too.  You could argue with my opinion on this, saying that 
"Well that's just not realistic because everyone's using IE" or 
whatever, but then something like AOL's decision to use Mozilla as its 
internal browser engine comes along and changes the whole paradigm.  
Boom, you now have to change your entire site because now most people 
aren't using IE.

Coding to the standards is your best option.  In my opinion.  Good luck.
