+Summary: smartNavigation Page attribute throwing exception (MONO should ignore this attribute)
+Description of Problem:
+.NET 1.0/1.1 has a page attribute "smartNavigation" as in:
+<%@ Page smartNavigation="true/false" ... %>
+(which can also be set in web.config 'pages' section)
+** This is not supported in MONO and throws an exception.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Include smartNavigation as a page attribute.
+Additional Information:
+Smart Navigation is a feature of .NET which causes the page to be drawn 
+in an IFRAME.  This makes postback round-trips look invisible as IE only 
+refreshes the part of the form that has changed, plus it maintains the 
+users scroll position after a postback (.NET only enables this if the 
+browser is IE).
+It is not at all important for MONO to implement this; however it must 
+not *break* when the attribute is present.  For now this attribute should 
+be allowed but ignored.  
+Other info: On the .NET framework, an extra IFRAME is emitted (if using 
+IE 5.5 or above), and a javascript file is reference from the page.
