Hmm. I observe the same behaviour using Mozilla 1.5 and also
Konquerer 3.1-12. With Matthew's tests of Exploiter and Opera, that
seems like pretty conclusive sampling of the browser population.
So. OK, I take back everything I just said. I think the browsers'
behaviour here is antisocial, but if that's the world that we live in,
then I agree with Matthew that Theo's suggestion will, after all,
cause more problems than it solves.
Sorry, Theo. The world was never meant for one as beautiful as you
