Thank you for the compliment.

It turns out the version of Win95 I'm testing on is 4.00.950 B,
with IE 4.0 SP1.  Furthermore, it had pre-bundled software,
so I have no idea what could be causing a conflict on this

At least I know I'm not going crazy and that it does, in fact,
run under at least one person's copy of Win95, though.

Thanks.  Guess I'll need to clean off the system now...
