Q. Which browsers can I use to access this website?

A. We recommend the following minimum browser and operating system combinations:

    * For Windows PC: Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01, Netscape Navigator 6.2.2, and Opera 6.01.
    * For Macintosh: Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.1, Netscape Navigator 6.2.2.
    * For Linux: Netscape Navigator 6.2.2.
    * For users with disabilities the following are recommended: For Windows PC: Jaws 3.7. Lynx 2.8.3.

  It looks like they have that problem sorted now.
