   4.75 worked for me on those pages, but crashes so often on other things
that I've gone back to 4.73.  Some Javascript I was hacking (based on the
netscape universal presentation tech note), *Javascript that came straight
from Netscape* crashed 4.75 every time.  On the application pages I'm
especially suspicious of <FONT face="Arial,Helvetica"> triggering the bug,
since the presentation I was working on used Arial, Helvetica, or Sans-Serif
in a (nonstandard) very large size if available.
   4.75's survivability depends on what font and javascript options you've
chosen?  I don't know, but 4.73 is a lot more stable.
