I guess I should have said "... that aren' Mozilla
based." It seems that every browser that has Mozilla
attached to it has the problem. I haven't exhausted
your list yet, but so far that is pretty consistent.

Amaya, from W3C, seems to be a little buggy, or else it
doesn't suppport everything a "real" browser does!

So, any browsers to try that aren't Moz based?
