I thought I had explained it in such a way that a qualified webmaster 
could understand. I told them, which system I was using, which browser, 
which pages were acting up, enclosed a copy of the warning i received; 
also explained that in the warning, because, of the cut & paste 
operation, that the check marks that were present in the present column 
could not be reproduced because they were graphics.

I would assume that if a website was not working properly with browser 
"X" it would be a good idea to use  browser "X" to reproduce that problem.
Although that assumption could be challenged. :)

I have become so militant in my old age that I have written companies 
stating that their site blocked my browser, when they write back, if 
they do, saying I should use another browser.  I just write back stating 
that Amazon or futureshop allows my browser, I'll buy there, thank you.
Same with hardware, Linux compatible?

If you want my business, you do it on my terms, its my money.

So much for my rant. :)
