Thanks Pico, I appreciate it.
Given MacIE's unique idiosyncracies, the fact that MS has discontinued
it, and the emergence of Safari on the Mac, I think that if people find
the MacIE to be an important part of their audience, they would be
better off using a table based framework. IAC I don't think MacIE will
last much longer.
