And just to make this topic even *more* weird, I know a guy who is logging
on to AOL and using Netscape 4.08 to browse, even though he has IE6 and
Netscape 6.21... He says he "likes it better."
What in the world are we coming to? <sigh>

That's correct. When my parents recently got a new Dell, it came
with Windows XP (and, thus, IE6) plus AOL6. I quickly determined,
thanks to its particular behavior in rendering various CSS-based
designs, that AOL6 was using the IE6 engine to render Web pages. It
was kind of weird.
