Of Continuing Interest
- The migration of children with DIABETES to www.childrenwithdiabetes.com from the Castle Web domain continues. You will notice revised navigational links at the bottom of every page. To take full advantage of the new look and feel of children with DIABETES, you should use a newer graphical browser such as Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or later.
- Testing has shown that some users of Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 have a problem when first trying to connect to the Message Board. Clicking the Refresh button to reload the page once or twice usually corrects the problem. Updating to the most recent copy of the browser fixes it.
