Wow, thats one messed up site. I saw no Flash at all on MSIE4.5/Mac though I
did see some javascript code lying around : "document.write(' ');
document.write(' '); } else if (!(navigator.appName &&
navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape")>=0 &&
navigator.appVersion.indexOf("2.")>=0)){ document.write('" for example.

javascript code that I could see on the page, there was an animated gif at
the lower right (after I moved the browser window over so I could see it,

In NS 4.08 on my Win98 box, the page size was ok (that box has a 17" set to
