There is a funny thing about Atari UK's website (www.uk.atari.com):
When you browse through Support -> Internationals Hotlines, you get a list of all the hotlines and a country flag next to the specific Atari company (the country where the company is located in the case of multi-country operations).
So, you have there Germany (Germany's flag), Austria (Australia's flag), Switzerland (Switzerland's flag), ... and at the end of the list, you see the email and URL of Atari Australia, together with Austria's flag. ;)
Conclusion: whoever made that page should have proofread it first.
