Neat. Windows 2000, IE build 6.0.2800.1106 reproduces this. I *just*
went to Windows Update. All patches are installed. The only things left
to install at WU are the .NET framework, DX9, and Media Player 9.
I tried the sample code and made a simpler, non-Java version using a
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0; URL=ftp://ftp*://?">
Fortunately, OE isn't stupid enough to launch the URL automatically if I
open an HTML message with that source, but I wonder about other
HTML-capable news readers.
