Hi

Sorry, you may have the plugin installed but when you come across a page
that uses javascript detection, it fails with Mac IE.
This is because IE doesn't support javascript detection and will always
return a value of false when asked if it has the flash plugin installed.

If no js detection routine is used then you will be able to see the flash
content.

This is why the alternative of using flash to detect flash and using a meta
redirect is suggested by both macromedia and http://www.moock.org/ for
example.

Also just to clarify, IE and NEtscape are two completely different browsers
in so far as how they treat detection, javascript, css etc etc. Neither
fully support any standards that might be out there.

Cheers
