Hello Everyone, Bill, Jerry...
This is fun to talk about web browsers. I test my web sites on three of 
them: Netscape, Internet Explorer and the Mac Safari. Safari is the 
fastest and most sophisticated web browser I have ever used...I love 

I have also used Opera before. It is a nice web browser that started in 
Europe I believe, so it probably has good PNG support! I will try it 
again...this will be fun...it has such a great logo and other 

And I have never heard of FireFox or Thunderbird web browsers and I 
look forward to trying those too...Thanks for the information, Bill!

But none of this solves another problem...which is when using a 
computer in a public library, or in a computer-cafe, you are not using 
your own computer, and in those cases, people will have to use the 
browser that is installed...and oftentimes the public computers are not 
kept up-to-date...so it is to our advantage to make sure that everyone 
can send SignWriting Email, even if they do not have the newer web 

Val ;-)
