Hmmm... there's a good point there... ;-)
But, are you positive that Netscape does that? I ask because of one of the things
that nags me most in Netscape Mail: sometimes I receive a HTML e-mail w/ images (for
instance, an info clipping of some kind) and, if I press 'stop' too soon (in less
that, say, 30s) it seems to load only part of the text... ;-/
