<< I am surprised that anyone had problems with Netscape. >>
I'm not. As a webmaster who tries to keep our pages as widely readable as
possible, I've been trying to write them in strict accord with HTML 3.2 and 4
standards, but I keep finding Netscape to be less and less compliant with
those standards. My first thought when the AOL e-mail client presented me
with the raw HMTL code, and then when Martin wrote that the mail went
everywhere except where it was intended, was that a worm may be at work in
the ActiveX control. This still may be true, or it may simply be an
incompatibility with Netscape. Either way, Martin, you may want to have
someone with good antivirus tools and extensive knowledge of Netscape to
check it out.
As for this reflector, I encourage the powers that be to implement a filter
to remove HTML code from posts. We had to do that on the LWCA Longwave
Message Board, particularly because it's open to everyone. It has saved a
lot of headaches.
