Reading around, I can't find anywhere that says "an updated IE" will 
_have_ the fix KB831167.  It _seems_ to be the case that it must be 
applied separately, apart from the normal Windows updates.  I haven't 
found any links in other updates that say it has been included in 
following updates.

I take it as a very bad sign that the download page for "Internet 
Explorer 6 Service Pack 1" has as its leading "What Others Are 
Downloading" item
       1. Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB831167)

Does anybody know whether this fix (released in 2004) is guaranteed 
to be in recent IEs ?

Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1  download page:

BTW: I wonder why no one has gotten the domain farceforge.com and 
forwarded it to microsoft.com ?
