Oops - I've commented out the comment.  Would you please be kind enough to
try it again?  Did you manually navigate to the nobrows page or did the site
jump you there?

>>>JS error, line 6, syntax error:

thanks - fixed that.

>>>JS error, lin 23:
>>>init is not defined

damn - you aren't supposed to get this far.

>>>- there is no link to proceed anyway...

there is on the non complying browser page.

NN3 is not standards compliant.

Thanks for the comment.  I agree - we need to clean up the wording a bit so
we don't offend the user with the wording.
However, we give a moose's nut about compliance with standards so if the
user gets offended by our compliance - tough.
