IE does handle many issues with DHTML and CSS better than Netscape.  But
plopping that bloat on top of VMWare seems like an awful resource waste
just to browse the web.  To each his own, I guess.

BTW, I've heard, but have not verified, that Lynx actually handles DHTML and
HTML 4.0 correctly.  I can't imagine what my web site would look like in
text only mode.
