Not so sure about this one. Safari? I don't know.> Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.2)
Netscape 7.01.> Gecko/20021120 Netscape/7.01

So it looks like the trend is that people who are using Netscape 4.x
can't access your site. Serves them right. It was a good browser in its
day but frankly its CSS support is spectacularly bad.
Is any Mozilla or Netscape 7.x available for OS 9? If you can only get
netscape 4.x on OS 9 then it appears that mac users who are not on OS X
can't access those parts of your site.
