Quite. It get's worse once you use frames in Netscape.

As I said, we've known how to make sure this all works for more than a
year and a half (certainly in cocrete form for more than a year),
isn't it about time it was fixed?

As for netscaoe's servers, natively, they do very little to help. 
Last time I looked, there was no *simple* way of allowing correct
content labelling.
