HTML / Cross-Browser Complacency Questions

Sep 8, 2010 at 9:06 PM


We are in the process of implementing a web-facing report viewing application in .NET that uses Reporting Services and the ReportViewer .NET control. The rest of our website(s) are in PHP though so this component is of interest if its capabilities are at least on-par with the .NET approach. Accordingly, my questions are:

  1. Is the markup produced by this PHP library standards-compliant XHTML (ie: will work perfectly cross-browser) or is it still Microsoft proprietary markup (ie: broken in Firefox, etc.)?
  2. Does the PHP library support ALL the SSRS controls found in 2008 R2 (ie: gauges, charts, maps, spark lines, indicators, etc.)?  If not, which aren't supported and will they be soon?
  3. Is the markup produced by the PHP library more mobile-friendly? Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge / experience using this library, and for any insights into your comparisons of it vs. the .NET approach.
