This school focus on the XML software implemented in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, and its XML processor called MSXML. It will be of little use to explore any of our software examples using any other browser. < end quote >

You will also find out Mozilla doesn't handle the CSS filter:alpha-etc properties, if you want to point some IE things. Half of the examples are using ActiveX, and obscure <object> references, so no wonder they do not work on Mozilla.

You showed cases of MSIE-specific coding that break in Mozilla. Try on IE. Now that's _standard_ coding that breaks in IE. I'll let you decide on how laughable/cryable the situation is.

The only problem I see here is the mishandling of an internal stylesheet, and that is all.
