I can assure you they're not selling fur hats, and they might raise their un-sabled brows at all the hits they start getting from The Fur Den. I tried putting browsable in my spell checker and was offered a choice of brow sable or brows able It didn't recognize browseable or browsible either. It's just not a word Shakespeare would have used. Think of cows in a browsable pasture? Now in Hamlet there's the deceased king of Denmark whose beard was a sable silvered, so maybe brow sable isn't that far off.
