Not to offend anyone, but,( the heck with that, lets offend!)  the AOL
browser is a joke.  It fails to handle many of the HTML 2.0 standards,
andnow HTML 3.0 is nearly official?  I do take the high-brow approach,
and say, "Get a real connection, or quit complaining!"

Guess everyone should have text only pages for those still using Lynx!
( not knocking lynx, its a fine text browser)  Maybe we should
accomodate Vic-20 users also.  You knwo, everyone ha a right to equal

I am not about to put a copy of the LAME, CPU hogging, resource
stealing kludge that AOL calls a broswer on my PC to test my pages.

We test our pages with Netscape (win 16, win32, Linux, mac), MSIA,
OS/2 IA.  If thats not enough, too bad...
