Adam,

Thanks for this suggestion!  I just tried this on Win2k, and it works
there as well, although the files are in a different place. On Win2k
you will have to go to your Documents and Settings folder, then
go to the folder for the user you are logged in as, then look
in Local Settings\Temp. A file named IE#### will appear with the current
date. If you click on it it loads in IE6 with no problem except
for the broken image links.

Lorrie
