Thank you for your reply, Antonio, and the information.

Sorry for the delay in sending this, but the e-mail part of my ISP had 
an outage for most of yesterday. I couldn't send or receive e-mails. 
This has regularly happened during the past three weeks. The outages 
have lasted from a few hours to all day! No sooner have they repaired 
the fault, than it goes off again! Very frustrating! 

Any way, changing the browser identification in Konqueror works and I 
can use the site. However, User Agent Switcher in Firefox doesn't 
work with this site. So, for now, I will use Konqueror.

Cheers

Keith
