Each of the twenty pages of the site was viewed in the various browsers three times over a period of one week and then given the following scores. The best possible score is twenty times five (100).

5 – for a perfectly rendered page
4 – near perfect rendering but minor cosmetic glitches
3 – rendered but with elements in the wrong place
2 – broken, but readable
1 – too badly broken to be of any use
