Turns out that the vendor has never tested his stuff on anything other 
than IE6 "because nobody asked for it". Then quickly proceeds to read 
the M$ incantations about security, standards, costs, support etc all 
of which i painstakingly corrected. Faced with the prospect of 
admitting to incompetently advising clients they  have agreed to test 
with FF / Moz and take corrective action where ever neccessary, 
subject to being given some time whenever things dont pan out as 
planned. The outcome was such imo cause i insisted on a point by 
point reply and also cause this vendor is known for being a very 
ethical company.
