The concept is so cool I'm positively _panting_ to try it out. :-)

However I couldn't get it to work in MSIE 5.5 on W2K NO. It flashed up what
looked like a script error dialog for half a second but then it disappeared
again and nothing happened. Could it be that it only works with the US
version of W2K or MSIE? Or did I goof up somewhere obvious?
