Please do the following:

1. Fix the missing CSS file
(http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/styles/xplorejs/tree_tpl1.js) when accessing the
backup Periodicals interface (http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/jrns.jsp).

2. Add support for Safari 2.0.x and newer on all of IEEE's web sites.

Reasons for requesting these changes:

1. Microsoft has discontinued support of Internet Explorer 5.2 for Mac OS X as
of 12/31/2005.


2. The last version of Mac OS X that Apple distributed with Mac IE 5.2 was 10.3
("Panther").  Beginning with Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger") which was released on
April 29, 2005, only Safari 2.0.x was distributed with the operating system,
and Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard") will be out later this year with Safari 3.0.

Please note that if you wish to test IEEE web sites with newer versions of
WebKit (the browser engine used in Safari) that will be close to what's used in
Mac OS X 10.5, you may download nightly builds at http://nightly.webkit.org/
that work on Mac OS X 10.4.
