What I cannot understand, since this is a browser issue, is that it
becomes a Mailman problem.  Should Mailman, and every web site on
the Internet, change their programming?  Should the browser
programmers change their programming?  I suppose the answer to those
questions depend on who is asked.

the night the day; Thou canst not then be false to any man.
