Super; where do I get MSIE 3.0 for my Sun workstation running X11R6 and
SunOS 4.1.4 then?  Do all these super plugins work on this platform? 
Ah... looks like I'm staying with Mosaic 2.7b5 then.  Hopefully you're not
designing long lived sites with useful technical information on them; I
don't mind just "missing out" on the eye candy advert sites.
