A well known fact, which leads right into your next comment...

And yet, with 90% of the net implementing the "will never do" scenario,
we manage to get a lot of internet retail done anyhow. I'm obviously going
to need a *lot* more caffeine to sort through that conundrum....

OR, it *could* be that the retailers know about the way 'things'
operate and don't make many changes once they get their site up...

You don't know many retailers, do you? :slight_smile:

Besides, changes to the site wouldn't help or hurt a network fault.
