Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Sweetness

I sat down last night, with my two children, to watch the much-protested “Sugartime” episode of Postcards from Buster. A sweet, wholesome half-hour tour of life in rural Vermont (as seen through the video camera of the eponymous rabbit). Lots of maple sugar, dairy cows, and even a Shabbos dinner. Having now seen the show, I am more amazed than ever at the “controversy” it engendered.

We have a contingent of seriously twisted people in this country. And I don’t mean “Mom and Gillian,” the parents of Buster’s tour guides in this episode.

Re: Sweetness

Hey Jacques,

I trust your judgement that this stuff is completely benign and harmless. I agree that this whole controversy is silly. But will you please stay away from these left-wing nuts at “mediamatters.org” etc.? You certainly should if you want your readers to take you more seriously than them.

Best,
Michael
