hadess: Nat West's online banking system works fine with Mozilla if you fake the user-agent ident string to be something it likes.

Since Mozilla doesn't allow you to do that per-site, you have to do it globally, and then you stop showing up in site statistics anywhere as Mozilla; you show up as whatever you're masquerading as to make Nat West happy.

Apparently the Mozilla people think this is a good thing, which is why they refuse to implement per-site user-agent masquerading.

Since masquerading also breaks the Java plugins, it's probably best just to use Konqueror for accessing the Nat West online banking stuff.

robilad: Don't confuse -ko and -kb. Remember that even if there are false positives occasionally they're trivial to filter out of a diff. CVS won't even complain about them if they change when you commit. Extra information, within reason, is good. Lost information cannot be reclaimed.

I shall decline your kind offer to call you a vegetable right now, but if you ever import my code and eat its CVS tags, then one of your customers comes to me for help with it and I can't tell what versions they've got, I reserve the right to change my mind :)
