(Apologies for the odd headers I seem to generate, it appears to be my
Mercury mailserver with some combination of references, I'm switching to
an alternative SMTP, after failing to fix it, hopefully it won't be
happening again.)

Much better, I can go along with that (but will still find it slightly
annoying :-)

That's not so fair, I can't fix NN4, it doesn't provide the mechanisms,
only a proxy could be placed in between to do anything.  Icould fix IE4
so it works better though. (of course I can fix IE5.5 so it works much
better with jfw 3.7, which I don't feel has utilised the accessibility
hooks of IE well at all, it's still primarily a windows tool, rather than
a web user agent, which is fine of course, it's what it is for after
all.)

I can believe it, I'd only imagined that there would be no rendering such
that it wasn't made obvious that was a link.

Cheers,
Jim.
