    Andrew, it is definitely a requirement for some applications.
    However, it would not be surprising if applications overtime have made
    themselves independent of the registry entry.

    I do know that to view my plane 1 example web page with IE, the registry
    needed to be set on both win 2k and win xp.

    If I get some time later I'll play with unsetting it and see what
    happens now.
