    Hi,

    Not very important, but IE (6.0.2800.1106) on my W98SE (Dutch) box keeps crashing on the thread in Ten-forward Administrative Christmas Message
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=112558

    The crash occurs in the posting from Q-Section; I guess that the reason is some foreign language characters there...
    (hey Q-Section, I'm not blaming you old friend ;)).

    ;)

    Well, I couldn't recreate it myself, but from past experience, I know that some PCs don't handle the on the fly loading into memory of fonts not used in the normal operation of that computer. My own PC pauses momentarily the first time I open a thread containing a font I don't normally use. I can see the extra disk activity as the font gets loaded into memory and then finally displayed. I'm assuming that this could crash some people's PCs, depending upon a number of factors, including resources available, etc. So, we'll need to see if this edit fixes the problem.
