it's not like i want to drag this thread out any longer, but i'm
pretty sure you can see the problem here:

http://www50.statcan.ca/census2006/js/browserCheck.js

particularly the last few lines of the function
"checkForSupportedBrowserVersion", which reads as follows:

	}
	    // The OS is not MacOS (and not Microsoft Windows)
	    else {
			// The OS is not supported
			return false;
		}
	}
