true, which is why I only made the comment when you mentioned the
default browser with urls issue. ~g~
I just think it is bad coding to rely on a specific proprietary app that
doesn't support all os options if you want to make use of python's
had someone asking in a forum about the appearance of his frameset page.
my view raised an issue for him, I only got the sources, not the view.
and I noticed that he had coded the frames by pixel size not by percentages.
he completely rebuilt his page to make it work for all viewers. it had
