another bank, And going to tell everyone I see to
boycott this bank. Thankfully, they sad that they were aware of the problem -
and is was some crap involving MS & IE &
Java and that it would just take MORE time to figure out because of the
changes MS keeps making to IE & Java. AND, of
course, we all know that they really don't support (or don't want to support)
Linux in any way. It was only a problem
within Firefox & Java.

It is probably more that their developers do not know the difference
between a standard and a Microsoft implementation. I suspect they
confuse the two. MS are not changing the browser standards. They are
simply finally starting to follow the standards. Time for web developers
to unlearn all those MS-only hacks. MS' goal is that they will no longer
be supported. It is about time.

It is surely a slow process as so many MS-crap-implementations of IE are
still out there. So the MS hacks will remain until enough people update
to a new IE.

Yours sincerely,
