I thought spreading FUD was Microsoft's job, not Chris's. Really,
Chris, IE has enough problems that you don't need to spread
misinformation on top of them.
If you have some specific examples of how WebCT does not work with IE,
please post them. Rumors are not helpful. I just checked into a WebCT
this morning, completed two quizes, entered a chat room, viewed my
calendar and mailboxes, and checked out a few document archives. No
problems at all..
