As a rule I try and keep away from ebay but there you go, sometimes  
you want to do something and the simplest way is to use ebay ;-(

I was trying to sell something on ebay, first time ever for that, and  
I hit a snag.  I couldn't upload an image of it.  I emailed ebay and  
got back a letter saying among other things:

> Most likely the problem is browser issues. The site is optimised to

> Unfortunately if you are using older and/or different browsers, our

> The only advice we can suggest, is to either try to see if you can get
> an update of the software you are using, or perhaps use another system
> that has more advanced browser capabilities.
