Hi Everyone.

You'll find many sites with "certain types" of Java that won't work on
Internet Explorer too. I use IE most of the time but I have a copy of
Netscape 4.79 that I use for certain problem sites. I think it all goes back
to Microsoft pushing their special flavor of Java that differed slightly
from the original stuff... I'm sure the details came out in the antitrust

I'm a little ashamed to admit it but I use Entourage(MAC version of Outlook)
for mail and Explorer to browse and, IMHO they are far superior to anything
