JS error, line 6, syntax error:
(you need //-->, you forgot to comment the comment)

JS error, lin 23:
init is not defined

- there is no link to proceed anyway...

- "These standards are designed to ensure that the web surfing 
experience is consistent across all browsers, and computer 
types."  well, then why won't it work in NN3?

- "Your browser is not w3C compliant, and therefore will not display 
our page correctly."  you do understand that the user doesn't give a 
moose's nut about the W3C, assuming the user's even heard of it... 
and this text could be refined to sound a bit less haughty... in fact, 
all the copy needs to be cleaned up to not offend the user...

- and then i turned of JS and enjoyed the linearized pages...
