I hate the over use of flash and etc. I sometimes think that is similar to
putting a pdf file on a website instead of using txt. It bypasses some of the
quirks and you see what they want you to see.

I use Adobe's GoLive but they killed it for Dreamweaver. If it had been a
modest upgrade price, I would have upgraded but I didn't.

I have IE 7, Firefox, Seamonkey, and Safari on my main XP machine. I can't see
any obvious difference. I also can't see any obvious difference between
Firefox and Konqueror on FreeBSD and the XP browsers.
FWIW, IE seems to complain on many of the sites I visit. It has a little
comment on the status bar to the effect of completed but with errors. I
didn't see it on your site.
