 I tried this with Opera3.6 (which identifies itself with a "mozilla"
string as well as saying that it is Opera - and got the same page as
with IE or Netscape.

I tried using Amaya 2.2 as well,  but though it displayed the start page
I could not operate the search button since it is just an image witha
name (whichleads me to suspect that it hooks into a script, which I
think Amaya removed from the page on loading it).
