I should have looked at the entries closer prior to posting this.  All the
entries listed were not really MS domain entries.  They *started* with
MICROSOFT.COM.xxx... instead of *ending* with microsoft.com.

IOW, they were just other subdomains people had registered over time for the fun
(?) of it, but it likely had nothing to do with the DNS problem at hand.

And from where I am, msn.com and microsoft.com are back up, along with
hotmail.com.  Response time seems below par though, and www.encarte.com is still
getting DNS errors.
