"IE zones"? Surely you jest. I'm talking about real DNS administration.

I've now experimented at some length with available options on
http://demo.dnsdoctor.org/ , and have yet to produce results that are
both correct and usefully exhaustive. The erroneous data returned
concerning deirdre.org were particularly disheartening, but I'm trying
not to judge the site too hastily.
Anyway: The results returned for linuxmafia.com from that form remain,
after much experimentation, part error, part irrelevant, and nowhere
near particularly useful -- in my view.
Good luck with your "IE zones", though.
