I'll look forward to a possible blank page, but probably will get something
else! I'll have to remember the flush. I'm using MSIE 4.x for Windows 95 --
no firewall, I think. They did mention javascript (which can't be disabled
anyway) and cookies which are enabled. My problem may be because of the
javascript errors.
