Indeed, I intend to do so, but the most recent example, when accessing
https://catalogue.library.manchester.ac.uk/login?message=borrowerservices_notlog
gedin&referer=https%3A%2F%2Fcatalogue.library.manchester.ac.uk%2Faccount
only occurs once I have entered my userid and password, and you
may not be surprised to learn that I do not intend to disclose that
information by e-mail.

My memory is that I have seen it on other pages on that host and will
continue to look for one and post it as and when I find it.

My browser is Internet Explorer 6.0 but I suspect that it is the Fonts
directory in Windows that is lacking either a 'font' or more likely, some
code points in a font (I do get displays of Russian and CJK characters
which I did not on older software).  One thing I link to this is the
display I get on the Subject: line of some e-mails, on lists such as
MPLS-TP, from users with a Chinese affiliation, where the line
displays with many underscores, whereas at an Internet cafe,
looking at the archives, as one does, I get CJK characters instead,
probably a language variant of 'Re: '.
My MUA does not generate messages about wanting to download
'fonts'.
