I'd forgotten the issue per se so I went searching for it.  Now I 
recall...I believe it had to do with the doctype declarations on files in 
XHTML 1.0 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Strict.  IE 5 tried to go fishing for 
the file on w3.org and couldn't find it.  The problem was always in the 
early, early beginning of the development stages.  My guess is the file was 
missing something IE wanted and then later it got it.  I dunno.  Like I 
said, I never really had time to track it down (especially since it 
eventually worked again).

And then of course, in iCab, I get an indifferent face with XHTML files :| 
instead of a smiley face :) which kinda sucks.  I've never gotten a happy 
face from my pages in iCab.

Ah well.
