maybe your webstats program is grouping all mozilla-based browsers as
"Netscape 7". that seems a lot more likely than you getting thousands of
AOL Netscape requests and no mozilla requests at all.


ps: it still doesn't matter.  web sites should be written to the html
standards, not for the bugs and quirks of any individual browser.
