    Is it just me? Or is MS doing themselves a favour?

    Hi! I've went to http://www.altavista.com, then click on search for Image option on top. Then guess what? A webpage showed up with just text, and here's what it said:

    <!--
    -- Unfortunately, Microsoft has added a clever new
    -- "feature" to Internet Explorer. If the text in
    -- an error's message is "too small", specifically
    -- less than 512 bytes, Internet Explorer returns
    -- its own error message. Yes, you can turn that
    -- off, but *surprise* it's pretty tricky to find
    -- buried as a switch called "smart error
    -- messages" That means, of course, that many of
    -- Resin's error messages are censored by default.
    -- And, of course, you'll be shocked to learn that
    -- IIS always returns error messages that are long
    -- enough to make Internet Explorer happy. The
    -- workaround is pretty simple: pad the error
    -- message with a big comment to push it over the
    -- five hundred and twelve byte minimum. Of course,
    -- that's exactly what you're reading right now.
    -->

    I went there with Opera 6 will all javascripts and cookies enabled. Also, I told it to ident itself as MSIE 5.0!
