Using Win98, IE5.0, and Eudora, I just clicked on the link in your 
sig file and a nice IE5 window opened up on top, showing your library web 
site.  Tried it both with IE5 already open, and with it closed.  Did the 
same either way.

As to why yours behaves differently, I don't know right off, and am out of 
time to look into it.  I tried this only because it differed from my memory 
of what happens to me.

Good luck.
