    If I'm reading the article right, RTE Update 6 should be OK as is, right?

    I´m going to upgrade but to tell you the truth I always disable Java in all of my browsers, I just don´t trust it, with ActiveX controls you can at least choose to install a control or not. :rolleyes:
    Wait a minute, now that I think about it, this is the same with Java applets isn´t it? But anyway, I only allow a couple of ActiveX controls on my system and those are the more widely known ones. :)
