IE 4 made Netscape 4 look like a piece of crap. It was light-years
ahead.

I'm getting the impression that the other browsers have caught up but I
refuse to develop for them unless made to.

Questions:

Have the other browsers caught up with ease and power of their
scripting?
Do any of them have an XMLHTTP equivalent?
Do they share a common DOM?

I hate writing cross browser code. Supporting multiple browsers is like
having to test and write every application in Java, VB, and C.

It *is* possible that Mozilla now supports iFrames, I haven't kept up 
with it's development.  I do know for sure that they were originally an 
IE-only extension, so if Mozilla does support it, it represents a very 
rare case of Microsoft leading the pack :)

I'm not sure about the object tag idea... I've never seen it used that 
way but that certainly doesn't mean it won't work.   My understanding is

that it embeds content in a page that is recognized by one plug-in or 
another... I suspect it wouldn't help in this case, but I could be
wrong.

Now, if there is a way that I don't know about to target a layer, that 
could do the trick.
