MS IExplorer Users
2005.06.15
I love the way Microsoft follows standards.
In much the same manner that fish follow migrating caribou.

WARNING
  1. This site has been written within Industry Standards.
    It is validated Transitional HTML 4.01 and CSS 2.0
  2. MS IExplorer is pathetic in following the Industry Standards [1]
  3. So if you use it, you will not be able to see correctly the homepage and part of this website:
    • which works perfectly
    • which has been tested with many browsers
  4. Department of Homeland Security says IExplorer and Windows are dangerous, read it at CERT.
  5. Download serious FREE browsers: Firefox | Chrome | Flock | Opera | Avant | Netscape
  6. Or click on one of the following:
Get Firefox! Get Firefox! Get Firefox!
If you use MS IExplorer, we are very sorry
that you cannot fully enjoy the web

In such unlucky case you would use siteMap to navigate this site.
*[1] Technical Point

The problem was, and still partially is, about the drop-down menu, which in the previous version of the home page, was at the top.
MSIE does not respect the hover mouse property.
Neither the style: "ul { display: inline }" related to list.
That's it. So the average MSIE user can see only a mess up, like "window's blinds"
Now such menu's been moved to the bottom.
Also, the problem's been persistent until MSIE 6.0 - With the 7.0 things have changed although partially.

UPDATE - 31 Dec. 2009
With IExplorer 8.0 Microsoft (M$) has solved the problem. Almost 5 years later the HTML and CSS were approved.
No bad.

UPDATE - 11 March 2010
Since today this page won't be updated anymore.
