Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:0.9.7+) Gecko/20020123
BuildID:    2002012304
(I'll upgrade when mozillaZine gets its act together and links the
Windows button to an actual Windows build rather than a Linux build.)

I go to http://www.tripedal.com/, and it doesn't recognize Mozilla
as a 6.x functional level browser.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the URL http://www.tripedal.com/


Actual Results:  JS alert:
  Netscape Navigator 3.x 4.x or 5.x detected
  Tripedal uses extensive DHTML | FLASH | XML
  Upgrade your browser!
and doesn't let me into the site

Expected Results:  Redirect to
http://www.tripedal.com/StaticPages/TheNewList/links10.htm  like IE does

I looked in the JS sniffer code, and I found the following disregard
for the diversity of web browsers:
"Hasn't been tested on a Mac" but lets the users in anyway
"Hasn't been tested on UNIX" and doesn't let the users in

This page makes Bobby cry.

Tripedal may not be in the US, but I had to give it a component
within evangelism.

Contact address is webmaster@tripedal.com

The layout degrades quite badly in any browser that sets a minimum font size
larger than their specified CSS.
