DP -- I think you guys own URL parsing, right? If so, then this is yours. :)

As I suspected, that link will redirect to a https: url. https will land with
the new netlib M6. We could be giving better error messages but that aint M4.

Following the previous instructions of going to etrade.com and pressing the
yellow LOG ON button does not produce this error message on MacPPC build
1999-06-02-09-M7, or on Win98 or WinNT build 1999-06-02-08-M7.

The page does not, however, go to the log on screen as it should

On today's build, the log on button does not link to the new page on any
platform. (No error message now, but no linking either.)

Jan this is acceptable because we dont have an https handler in place yet.
Things will change once we have a https handler. If you are only referring to a
missing error to report a missing handler then that is being covered by a
different bug #6700

And so marking as fixed again.
