we were discussing this on the irc some.  it is all very confusing to me
as i refuse to use wine to see what my pages look like in ie and ie
refuses to work with my operating system without something like this.

we were talking about how to make this page:
http://carol.gimp.org/blog.html show the pattern in IE.  my idea was to
get a screen shot of it being rendered correctly and use image mapping
for the links.

and, i think this is quicker and more predictible than any of the silly
hoops the other browser asks the web designer to jump through and also
would give the instant satisfaction of having made the software do the
jumping instead.  "here IE! jump! jump!" /me whistles encouragingly.

personally, i thank everyone who has been involved in giving me a
lifestyle in which i do not need to worry about broken propietary
software when i make pages.  the mess you see on my web site is all my
own making for my own purposes.  and frankly, i don't really care if
msie users can see the gimp pattern of the day or not.  a better
question is, can you install other software and perhaps go without
government aid?

everyone, practice with me "Here IE, Jump, Jump!".  software should work
for you and not against you.
