Default FEMA Aid app IE only

Just found this - thought this was against federal policy:
FEMA's IE-Only Form: Just What Katrina Victims Don't Need
By Jim Rapoza
September 9, 2005

Opinion: By not writing to standards, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has created an unnecessary hurdle for many hurricane victims seeking aid who have already endured too much.
At the time I am writing this column, about two weeks after the hurricane hit, the FEMA form at www.fema.gov/register.shtm requires IE 6.0 or better to work. This means that a family that is sitting at a Linux-based kiosk that was donated to help people get online, contact loved ones and access needed online services is on its own when it comes to getting help from FEMA.
