Hi Martha,

Thanks for reporting this problem.  Can you tell us what the machine
name and IP address of the machine that you were running your web browser
on?  Also, it would be helpful to know what browser you were using
(e.g., IE 5.x, Netscape 4.x, etc.).  We have seen problems at sites
that are using Internet Explorer (IE), but have not seen the same for
sites using Netscape.

I will work with my systems administrator to see if we can figure out
why you were having sporadic problems.

Again, thanks for reporting the problem.

This is a RedHat Linux 7.0 system but with the 2.4 kernel,
using Netscape 4.78.
