AOL website compatability?

AOL comapatibility filter...I have a client that uses AOL. He says that the site isn't working on his computer. I suspect it's an old junker, but is there anyway that I can check this? My google fu is not working today apparently.

Please provide more info about what your site is supposed to do, and the experience that your client is having.

Borrow his computer. Other than that I really don't know what you could do to be sure, particularly if you fear that it's a combination of weirdness particular to his computer. I do my best to try my websites on all browsers but AOL is a tricky one and the audience is so low that I don't generally get a chance to.

Find out which version of AOL, and on which platform --

AOL 5+ for Windows uses the default browser installed on the machine, IE or NS. Previous to that it used an embedded version of IE4, I believe.

AOL 7+ for Mac does the same thing. AOL 6/Mac uses an embedded version of IE 4.5.

Last I heard they were working on a new engine for the OS X AOL client that used the Safari rendering engine, but I have no idea what the status is.
