If you want to do something like this, why not use Pueblo? The new
version doesn't give you frame, it gives you actual separate windows, Allows
for sound and pictures inline, does the scrolling you wish Netscape would
do, and is basically a MUD client, that supports the use of HTML tags, with
a few of its own. The newer version, pueblo 1.09 beta (waiting for 2.0
coming soon.) Allows for just about everything I could have thought of (so
far ;)) for adding easy, and quick sound and graphics to a MOO. Take a look
at that one.
The latest version is at ftp://ftp.chaco.com/pub/pueblo/pblo109.exe
Their web page is at http://www.chaco.com
And there are already quite a few places out there that have PUeblo support,
Snow, for one. If you want to see what I am doing for RPG with Pueblo, drop
me a note, and I will give you an account on a not yet open for request MOO
which has lots of pueblo support.
WWW Moo has always been a bit laggy, which pueblo doesn't suffer from,
BTW. I wouldn't even have considered using netscape as a client, but pueblo
fits the bill well.
