  I managet to  get pointshare exchange main page but  there MS could read 
only 'active link'. There were only three links on that page so something 
is missing.

  Login page worked ok except phone's way to capitalize first letter and 
each letter after a dot so user must be careful to check case for each 

  Html is ok but probably easier page layout go get quickly to required 
service. Now user have to pass thru all greeting texts and menues twike 
before even getting to the login page.

  File extension is .txt but content-type is binary but file itself is 
text. This could be confusing for certain browsers that rely on 
correct content-type-header.

  Phone opens .txt-files in it's own text editor but apparently these file 
are kept on some kind of database because i have never found text files i 
have saved although they  are visible in the text editor.

  Page seems always return  plenty off cell data regardles of focus point 
given - or there are  over 1300 gsm cells within one  kilometer around the 
north  pole:-)
