Well, if it doesn't work with the world's most popular Web browser, as far
as I am concerned it needs fixing so that it does. Sorry, but you won't
be seeing any Wiki entries from me until it is fixed. I will not install
a third-party browser just for this one application.
Why they have to invent yet another mark-up language as well also beats
me. We have HTML thanks very much - that's what I use and I'm sticking
with it for now.
This Wiki implementation, on my first visit as a potential author, seems
foreign and unfriendly, although the basic idea is one I like.
