I had this error come up while creating a html email in word (dont ask why I am using Word 2007 on a PC)




I found out how to get around the problem, but really. This is MS Office 2007 and it defaults to support for these 2 browsers. OK, if I want to support the 5 people on the Internet still using them but this is the 21st century.

Goes some way to explaining why MS is so behind, and by the way, the tell me more button took me to a generic help menu that in no way told me any more - at least not any info about this problem.

Come on Microsoft, give us helpful links and software that doesn't get stuck because you are so dumb that you default to supporting features that were current in the mid 1990s.

No wonder Apple is way ahead of them (well not in revenues and market share, but you know what I mean).

I think saying that 5 people still use netscape or IE4 is a little on the high side you think? And that's really funny.

Wait, you mean there's a version 4 of IE? I've been using 3 for a while now!

Don't know about IE 4, but Netscape .... emotional memories .... those were the days ...

Cheers ... McBie

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

Yes, it's a shame. Once upon a time, a claim to fame of my alma mater...
I suppose it still is, but relegated to the History section.
