Yes, you could attempt to detect a browser; however, the best way is to redesign and apply Cascade Style Sheet (CSS) to your web page. All major browsers normally follow the CSS rules.

simply surround it by an IF tag, and you're set.
That said, CSS is indeed more reliable, but when you script is too complex to be converted, this might be a viable solution as wel.
