Oh I'm not giving up.  I just need some time to cool off or else I might 
"accidentally" put some JavaScript in it that detects IE5 Mac and 
rewrites the main content div with "This browser has performed an 
illegal request.  Please upgrade your web client.  Your credit card has 
been processed successfully.  You are now eligible to download the 
newest update at  The download will begin 
automatically in five seconds."

And the fact that it would be done in 100% standards compliant DOM level 
1 would "hypothetically" bring a smile to my face.

...or I could just count to ten, go to sleep, and let it lay for now.

Give up?  Mac IE 5.x is my new arch-nemesis.  Netscape 4 can breath a 
sigh of relief for the time being.  But I'm just going to let it lay for 
now.  Mark my words: Mac IE 5.x will be the client that screws up 
everyone's designs in much the same role that NS4 has occupied for the 
last few years.
