Dear friends,
Internet Explorer version 4.0 goes live on  in
between 6pm and 7pm PT today, September 30!  This is a product that I've
worked on and I'm very proud of. In case you're interested, my
contribution to the product was the accessibility options dialog box,
various UI and HTML features, and exposing the Dynamic HTML Object Model
through Microsoft Active Accessibility.

The following Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are also offering IE4
from their sites:
*	Concentric 
*	AT&T 
*	EarthLink 
*	Erol's 
*	GTE 
*	MCI 
*	MindSpring 
*	Prodigy 
*	Sprint 

It's a big download - 22mb approximately for the full installation - so,
you might want to just order the CD-ROM from Microsoft.  Information on
doing that is at the above listed web sites.

Y'all have fun now, y'hear?  >:-)
