Excuse me?  My habits in web browsing might be unusual or something,
but VERY RARELY do I come upon a totally unusable page.  And remember
that I'm using MacLynx, a version *TWO*SEVEN*ONE* port with half
the standard features missing and a few others buggy.  [Haven't
used my shell much lately because I'm messing with the config
files and the 680x0 binary, and want to be aware of any changes
in its behavior.]  I have no complaints.

Granted, I usually surf looking for information, shareware/freeware,
obscure program behavior-modification kits and the like, and
many of these pages are built along similar lines to a home-page,
but the search engines and other sites I use to *find* this stuff
are commercial [framesets and cookies and bears, oh my].

Yes, sorry; I like to blather about tables and strange ways to
add frames support, and I hope this hasn't annoyed anyone.  Those
kinds of puzzles *interest* me and it's hard not to think out
loud sometimes.

                                   Happy Hacking.
