Netscape brings memories back indeed. Particularly memories of the HTML and HTTP standards being raped beyond recoginition, and memories of some totally insane scripting language being hacked together to do turing complete calculations on an equally insane document object model.

Some of those problems have been fixed by the W3C in later years (eg. throug CSS), but others are still haunting us to this day.

I can NOT believe someone clicked on the button indicating they found your post "helpful". Did someone actually solve a problem based on it? "Hmmm my mouth has been bleeding every morning for years. Let me check out LQ. Hey it says Cap'n Crunch is like razor blades - that explains everything!".
Sometimes a good laugh is better than an answer.
