For what it's worth, it looks like their <base target> comes right
before some sort of footer... and I bet in IE6 the links in that footer
actually target the toplevel window, which I also bet is the reason they
have the <base> tag there. Of course that's all broken in IE7....

Hmm. I might be willing to deal with his quirk....
