I tried everyone's helpful suggestions and unfortunately, all of the relevant boxes were already checked for all the different flavors of Java.
My next step was to swap machines. This posting
is written on a laptop
under XP. Same IE; Same Norton. The laptop
goes back to the boat with me in two weeks time, so I think I may just blow off the problem on the tower until I get back from the 2006 cruise
. Thank you all for all your advice.
BTW, In case it is not obvious, the formatting works on this machine!?!
