How mad is that?? <snip> Now this is what I'd love to see come out of Microsoft: New Critical Patch: Microsoft is releasing for immediate download an Internet Explorer patch for versions 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 - running under all service packs and Windows/Macintosh versions. This patch will fix every bug in the Internet Explorer browser suite. This will make I.E. W3C Standards Compliant - fully supporting CSS1, 2.0, 2.1, & 3.0. Download your copy today!!! Just my wishes, Martin E.
