Some slight divergences above, or things I didn't fully understand.
 I am not yet sure that the best thing to do is to change (once and for all) 
the way my browsers identify themselves.
I conclude that if neither Konq nor Firefox work I can try that trick.

I appreciate that you are fighting for a cause (or many), and offered your 
help for solving cases.
In spite of my laziness I will try to join you on this cause.
Unless I am overburdened by the other causes I am also fighting for, or by 
trivial things, I will try to keep an eye on non compiant sites and see if I 
can act, with or without your help.


Flagging your mails as important and saving them in a "non volatile" folder.

Greetings		Perry
