Thanks. I read your article. Goodness, dots by the mouseover nav bars, how
strange. I'm really curious whether they've re-instituted the ability for
the browser to read PDF files. I recently had to put up a warning on another
client's site (who suddenly decided to put up three PDF files for viewers)
that Netscape 6 no longer allows viewing such. Hopefully, this feature is
again available.

Do you think it would be a good idea for me to uninstall 6.01 before
installing 6.1 Preview Release 1? Might they "fight" otherwise? Or, will 6.1
PR1 be regarded as an update? I had such an awful experience a few months
ago when downloading 6.0 that I'm very nervous

Also, I'd like to free up the 30+ meg that 6.01 now takes up on my
"fast-shrinking" hard drive!

What do you think?
