Hey people of the Mac. I realise that to you Windoze is evil & I fully hold that view but I do not like it when websites - which should always be written in code so as to enable any online machine to read the site properly oftentimes are not. Your website, for whatever reason, maybe to do with the font you use turns some of the page (most) into incomprehensible text. The thing is that I use evil college machines run by tech services whose response to linux is "is that difficult?" and I haven't tried them with MacOS. So this is the only way I can read your site - please make it more amenable to W3C rules and maybe leave out any font tags - but then that all depends on whether IE & W3C are compliant.

This page (and all recent ones on follows the W3C rules for HTML and CSS, as you will see if you validate it. We've made efforts to make the pages readable on all platforms and browsers--for instance, we don't use font tags for specify absolute sizes in our style sheets, and the face of the body text is left unspecified. So, my guess is that your browser isn't obeying the standards. Nevertheless, please send me a screenshot and I'll see what can be done.

Seriously, OS X is stable and has a nice wall between the OS and the apps, and between apps themselves. These are all side benefits from OS X being based on Unix, which has proven its stability over the last quarter century on heavy-load servers. I have a Windows XP machine too, and it's also stable, but OS X feels more stable.

Cheers, Carlos
