Wait, isn't this an argument *for* using Helvetica? After all, seeing a
blank page would encourage people to stop using IE.

Just kidding, although I am proud to say that I haven't used IE in many,

unfortunate that a variety of circumstances have led to the use of a truly
unfortunate piece of software as a key part of the user experience.
