So, as we pride ourselves in *educating* people, why not jump on this 
opportunity to educate our users as to exactly what causes the problem - 
a broken browser.

It's not a case of "Our way is right".  It's not even a case of "The 
*Standard* way is right".  It's more of a case of "The Standard way is 
*the* Standard way" and the user has a non standards-compliant browser.

Matt.
