Detailed results of the renormalization group calculation for the crossover behavior (e.g., temperature dependence) of transport properties of dilute polymer solutions are given. Universal plots are proposed which can be directly compared with experimental results without any adjustable parameter. The comparison of these plots with existing experimental results is satisfactory in some cases, but, generally, the wild scattering of existing data calls for more accurate and systematic experiments.
