Netscape browser users were denied justice this week, when they found themselves unable to access the document Microsoft filed with the US District Court on Tuesday, which the software giant had posted to its Web site.
To read the document, users found they had to revert to Microsoft's own Internet Explorer browser.
A Microsoft spokesman explained that the problem centred around a missing seven character coding tag that a member of staff accidentally left off after working late on Monday night to prepare the document for posting on Tuesday. Once discovered, the glitch was apparently sorted within two hours.
Meanwhile, Bill Neukom, Microsoft's senior vice president, said he did not expect the US Department of Justice's (DoJ) antitrust action against it to affect the planned release of Windows 98 in the second quarter next year.
This is despite the fact that the upgrade is scheduled to have version 4.0 of the Internet Explorer browser integrated into it, an issue that lies at the heart of the DoJ's move.
