Some browsers are, but I don't believe the Windows IP stack is comfortable
with multiple addresses coming back from a DNS request, and discards the extra
addresses, only returning one to the caller.

I could be very wrong here. I was told this at one point, from someone who I
have reason to believe should know. If this is definitely _not_ the case, let
me know.


Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
