Web-development with/for K-Meleon

K-Meleon uses Gecko, the rendering engine from Mozilla.org, and should be detected as such. Never ever try to detect K-Meleon to "work around" bugs we have. You could use K-Meleon to see how Gecko handles your pages (not how K-Meleon handles your pages; that's not important) Gecko aims to be fully standards compliant. If K-Meleon fails to follow the standards due to limitations in Gecko (on thus also visible in Mozilla and/or mfcEmbed) you should report your findings to bugzilla. When K-Meleon is the only browser with problems it should be reported to our bug database. Write standards complaint pages and let us know if we fail to handle them correctly. That's all.
