Ok, that does display my profile in IE, Safari, and Chrome.  In FireFox it
still wants to use the JSON.   I did install Jsonview  1.0 and that may have
put a preference for JSON in my FireFox applications.  I can see it there
and change what happens to JSON files, but i don't seem to be able to
remove it.  Oh well !

You know i would do that but as i have mentioned several times before none
