Odd. I have the document on screen right now in both NSN 2.1 and MSIE
3.0 ("final" version) and it's working fine.

If your browser crashed while loading an IMG, would you blame the
author of the site for using images? Ban images altogether? Both MS
and NS claim Javascript compatibility. Neither is there yet. But I
worked hard to make the page in question work with both, and it does
in Win95. I believe your browser is defective, but I'll have others
check out the page before it goes up for general consumption.

I appreciate your taking the time to look and am sorry you had the
bad experience. I really hoped to affect your opinion in a more
positive way.
