You have to wonder who's designing their UIs sometimes. With one
release, that's a mistake. To keep doing it is incompetence on the
part of the designers.
Thanks for posting the workaround. I've programmed simple browsers by
wrapping the internal IE com object. Lots of work to add all the
frills, but maybe I'll revisit that code eventually. Or hopefully
there's another browser that behaves more logically.
