This is a bit late for this thread, I know.  (I just went back and read
over past MOO-cows postings that I were too busy to read at the time.)  But
I'd hate to let a post like this go by without a shameless plug for Apple's
Cyberdog.  It has a web browser that DOES let you imbed a telnet window in
a frame-like section of the browser window.  It's not perfect, but it's
still great. :-)  (  Basically, it lets you
imbed ANY url into a web page, including telnet:// urls.  Way cool! :-) 
(Unfortunately, Cyberdog doesn't seem to handle http authentication
properly.  I'm on their case about that one.)
