 OH Boy, I hate to keep bringing this up here, because this thread has
really kind of gotten off topic, but just for your info, PUeblo supports
Netscape Plug-ins, so anythinng you can get on Netscape, you can use in
PUeblo. In fact, the newest version checks for netscape, and uses its
plug-in registry thingy, so all your plug-ins just pop right in ;) So, right
now you can use Macromedia's stuff.

  I agree that it weould be nicer to use a browser that everyone is familiar
with, and gets rid of server push. That is my main reason for giving Pueblo
a chance.  The new stuff you talk about with HTML will be nice, and could
very well do tha trick.  I think what might have been a better concept for
the pueblo guys is to have made a netscape plug-in out of Pueblo, instead of
remaking the whell, so to speak, with their own internal browser, and all
the other stuff they have in there (the VRML is included in that.)  BTW, The
VRML package they now use is 3DR, changed from their last version as well.
