Uli,

	while I agree with you on the nasty Microsoft ways, I'd like to point out
that, like it or not, IE is the browser people use.

	That said, I can (barely) convince my customers to go the XML/Java way
instead of sucking ASP... but I won't never convince them to give up IE.

	Anyhow: my problem is there even using Navigator 6 or Navigator 4.75 :(

Best regards,
