    Huh? It was one post with a basically 1-line response. Easy-peazy!

    C'mon, Greg, cut the Linonut some slack. I, for reasons good or bad
    (you decide) emptied my killfile and was greeted full-blast, all shields
    down, with a corruscation of imbecility, insult, and lunatic rants,
    though Moshe and Hadrone Queeg had moments of civility.

    So I got my bull**** fix for a few weeks. But I still need some hair of
    the dog that bit me.

    It's much quieter now, too quiet. And then Psyc Geek threw me up a
    softball.

    Anybody can do W3C. Even Linux nuts.

    You still can't get the problem?
    It is based on the Microsoft® XML Parser....

    So, the online problems, continue.....
    linux users can't view MONSTER job sites very well
    linux users can't make Toyota Car Payments,
    linux users can't make Ohio Lawyer Bar Payments online (ie only),
    and the list goes on and on and on.

    Even my bank gives me an error on linux's firefox.

    How well is a linux based net computer going to work,
    when web sites come up being required to use IE?

    And you all can't even figure out why a page is not working.
    No wonder Vienna was a complete disaster.

    A bunch of amateurs.

    73 errors, 11 warnings

    Here's why, I'd bet:

    Unable to Determine Parse Mode!
    * No XML namespace (e.g )
    could be found at the root of the document.

    As a default, the validator is falling back to SGML mode.

    No DOCTYPE found! Checking with default HTML 4.01 Transitional
    Document Type.

    (You can also get 102 errors for google.com if you select "ISO HTML").

    But, good point. Nice validation job on your site!

    The document located at was
    successfully checked as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This means that the
    resource in question identified itself as "XHTML 1.0 Transitional"
    and that we successfully performed a formal validation using an SGML
    or XML Parser (depending on the markup language used).

    However, if you validate your site as "HTML 4.01 Strict", you get 12
    errors, 28 warnings, so obviously you have some work to do .

    Total nonsense.

    Some of us have been quite effectively using Monster with
    non-IE browsers since that website came online.

    This is a cherry-picked example of one particular company
    and their (the Gap, not monster) inability to write pages that
    display on different browsers.

    Mebbe you're better off working for The Limited.

    ...used a variety of banks.

    ...used a variety of credit cards.

    ...used my state's DMV system.

    Been doing this since when the web was MORE hostile to the likes
    of firefox rather than more accomodating.

    Also, it's not "Linux's Firefox". It's Firefox in general.

    If you were remotely honest about this you would acknoledge
    that fact.

    I think the Queegster was sincerely trying (in the good sense of the
    word) for awhile, but then the bubble sac grew to big and
    ruptured.
