It's a site for IE users only. I tried it in both Safari on the Mac and Firefox on my Windows laptop, with the same result.

There's no DOCTYPE statement, and the scripting language appears to be something really strange.

I did try it with IE6 on the Windows laptop, but it brought up a heap of stuff that moves around, with a vulture as the linking feature. And clicking on various menus brought up the same one each time, along with a lot of other menus. Then I gave up, mostly because it was really ugly.

Oh, and if you click on the link to the map, you get the dreaded IE 'The page cannot be found', which in this case is a 404.

I'd avoid them like the plague and tell them why.
