has identified a a Mac-compatibility issue affecting computers within 349 of the broadcasting company's stations. Those who use PBS Connect -- the database software used by many employees and affiliates -- with a Macintosh and Microsoft Internet Explorer, may find that the "back" function does not work as expected.
