Your points are well taken and understandable.  But if you are supporting 
a M$ operating system enough to need to read the SB's, then wouldnt your 
IE be up to date to read them?  Even if you would just use IE to read M$'s 
site?  To sit and scream about web design decisions in this mailing group 
seems a little childish.  And if one was to argue that "Aanyone needs to 
read these articles not just people that support M$ OS's", well to 
that...most people that have a M$ OS as an end user have auto update 
turned on and dont even think twice about it...if they update at all.

I took Nick's comments differently. The way I understood it, the problem
is that Microsoft forces you to use a scripting language to read a
security article. A scripting language could have security problems. As
a result, many people have JavaScript disabled for security reasons,
regardless of their version of IE.

I agree with Nick. It is ironic and unfortunate that MS would force
users to turn on a potentially unsafe scripting language to read a
security bulletin.
