I have to serve a different page to mac os x clients. Can this be done automatically, or do I need to provide an alternate link?

Browser is unimportant it has do do with an Adobe Acrobat problem I have been having (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Graphics/Adobe_Acrobat/Q_20947854.html).

What does Request.Browser.Type return?  For me it returns IE6.

It looks like I may be able to get it from Request.Browser.Platform = "UNIX" or "Mac68k"

Yeah, that would have been next.  You wanted to know platform not browser type.  Duh!!!

Thanks, you pointed me in the right direction.

I guess that I can't tell Mac OS X specifically, but I can handle all unix derivatives, which represents such a small portion of traffick that I can ignore the fact that all UNIX are not OSX.
