    To explain, and avoid ongoing speculation, I posted some code that checks if the user has Silverlight and *if they don't and they are on a browser that supports Silverlight* then it shows them a modal dialog asking them to go an install it.


    Ahh I caught this last week when visiting a MS site and thought it was obnoxious. What really annoyed me is that if your browser window is not fully maximized the "close" icon in this window is not seen.
