Browser submission is ok in Firefox, used for some years . 2. Horrors in early attempts pre 2003 (2 Floppy discs and non-standard sheets then problems of uploading at slow slow speeds) 3. Employers CD Rom works in browser under SuSE, but has difficulty with Firefox sometimes. ( NIC tables etc)(It attempts to "open IE 6 or later") so for company tax return (not personal)I switch to MS Windows to ensure compatibility. As HMRC CD-ROM is now on my MS Windows , I find this year I used my windows machine to do tax returns both personal and company. UK Government is not yet 'joined up' even inside its own operations never mind Open Source software. (VAT to HMRC and NIC and PAYE all give different stuff in different ways and (Horror!)VATman demands a hard signed copy of his monthly/quarterly returns - says electronic submission is not adequate! However Charity Commission uses interactive PDF so any browser works for stuff I send there. Regards Eion MacDonald (eionmac@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx) Electronic mail is not secure and may not be authentic.
