AOL launched the fore-mentioned-in-this-thread-pile-of-crap called netscape
6 on April 5, 2000.

AOL's contract with microsoft ended in January, 2001.

we're up to netscape 6.2, in March 2002, and it STILL has flaky-at-best
support for CSS background-images.

the people at AOL that care about *ahem* --the dollar-- certainly won't let
their customers be molested by any lizard tongues.
