      That can't be the problem then.

      This has to to with the way webalizer has been compiled. The
      default length for the agent string is not long enough to
      catch the Netscape version for 6.x or higher:

      | From Bradford L. Barrett:
      | GroupAgent +Netscape6/ Netscape Navigator 6.x
      | Unless you modified the MAXAGENT value in webalizer.h, most

      A difference between IIS and Apache:

      Apache...: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)
      IIS......: Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+Windows+98)

      Maybe, but I'm not certain, quotes can help: "MSIE 6.*"
