There I was reading this article about how the latest flaw in IE had allowed, yet again, a bunch of hackers (from Russia) to infect the computers of numerous users, and how alternative browsers like Mozilla Firefox don't have to worry about that. Soon afterwards, I went to a web page via an e-mail link that opened in IE, and had TONS of problems displaying correctly. Just for the hell of it, I copied & pasted the link into Firefox 0.9.1 and used it to go there, and (Surprise!! Surprise!!) it looked exactly the way it was supposed to. This kind of stuff just reminds me why I'm converting over to a non-Microsoft enviorment. There's no excuse for this type of crap.
