Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

I think one of the most appalling part of this is that their excuse is that
the locked out browsers "don't support W3C standards", which would
be fine if it were locking out most IE versions and Netscape 4, but to
lock out Opera?

"If you are seeing this page, we have detected that the browser that you

So much for the hope that MS wouldn't go towards an "IE only" web. Not
that I use MSN.com, but how long till it happens on other MS sites like
Hotmail, MoneyCentral, etc?
