How scarry yet, unformative! New anything has buggs. Webpages often function differently on different browsers because some browsers have bits of propritary or browser specific, non-standard mark. I'm gnad theauthor, not the poster to this list, had the forethaught to let me add "well dah" to the end of his column. Take care all and happy jawsing.

I think this might be well taken by all Jaws users. An article by Joe Robson Nubee publisher I have some important advice to give you this week which I dearly hope you will accept and take on board. I bought a new desktop this week. It's super fast, has more memory than a thousand elephants. It has multi media features that leave me breathless, graphics facilities that are a joy to use, and a hard drive with an unimaginable capacity. And Windows XP! Yes I know the media is filled with the super-duper tricks of Microsoft's $10 billion Vista baby, but until the bugs are sorted, I'm sticking to XP. And I recommend you do the same. The guy in the PC store said it was bug free ... Yeah right - just like XP was bug free when IT was released onto an unsuspecting public! There are problems being encountered right now by companies who find that their programs are no longer compatible with Vista, and even a rumor that a very large company is considering a Law Suit against Microsoft. Microsoft are apparently working closely with Apple because Vista is not fully compatible with their -Pod. Take my advice and do not upgrade to Vista until the dust has settled and the bugs are sorted. Unless you want to be one of Microsoft's millions of guinea pigs! The same goes for Internet Explorer 7. Now unfortunately millions of Windows users have had it downloaded automatically onto their PCs by Microsoft. However, we have already had several members who have experienced problems such as ebooks not opening properly, and unnecessary security alerts when downloading. Just wait a few months before you upgrade because you'll find that you can quite easily do without the new features until it has been bug proofed. Now if you are using Firefox please be aware that there are occasions when this excellent browser causes problems. Problems which you may not be aware are caused by the browser. So keep Explorer handy and whenever you have a download problem, try again with Explorer. And whenever a web page appears badly formatted, load it again with Explorer and see if it makes a difference. I'm not saying that Explorer is better than Firefox, but when you encounter the occasional problem, just try again with the other Browser. When you have a few minutes to spare go to http://google.com and search on ... Vista Problems Explorer 7 problems Michael Thanks You... TickTalk Publishing Invites You...
