Actually, I solved this problem in a much more indirect way: I switched to Opera. I had had problems with Opera back with Opera 6, which originally made me flee to Mozilla. Whatever they were, though, they've disappeared with Opera 7, and I'm sold on this browser. Aside from having better all-around font rendering and Unicode support, it chews up way less memory and doesn't take forever to load. -- JS Bangs "We're counting on our virtues Because it's too hard to count the dead." -Jason Webley
