       <p>MD5 authentication provides a more secure password system,
       but only works with supporting browsers. As of this writing
  -    (July 1996), the majority of browsers do not support digest
  -    authentication. Therefore, we do not recommend using this
  -    feature on a large Internet site. However, for personal and
  -    intra-net use, where browser users can be controlled, it is
  -    ideal.</p>
  +    (January 2002), the only major browsers which support digest
  +    authentication are <a href="http://www.opera.com/">Opera 4.0</a>,
  +    <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/">MS Internet 
  +    Explorer 5.0</a> and <a href="http://www.w3.org/Amaya/">Amaya</a>.

  +    you are using one, you should not use the other, as they share
  +    some of the same configuration directives.</p>
