Hm, those StatMarket figures add up to 108.04%. I suspect you've made a typo
somewhere. If not, some browsers are getting counted in more than one
category.

The WebTV User-Agent: line includes "MSIE 2.0". I suspect nearly all of the
.7% share in the StatMarket statistics above is WebTV.

WebTV tries to approximate frames using tables. This means that on WebTV,
among other side effects, scrolling down causes all the 'frames' to scroll
like part of a single document.
