    Some of you might remember about the time when Opera complained that Microsoft purposely made MSN.com appear broken in Opera. Well, that's settled and done with but Microsoft's at it again.

    In Opera, set it as "Identify as Opera" and go here:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnwxp/html/xpsp2websites.asp

    Now, set Opera to identify as Mozilla, or MSIE, copy and paste the site again... now that site works! Opera's clearly blocked again ... :mad:

    Meanwhile, Bill though not exactly singing, gets to mug for his fans. ;)
