    Or perhaps highlight and drag-drop to the tab bar, or at least to the
    address bar.

    Hmm, worth a try, although if link hand-off isn't workin' you'd have to
    wonder about the odds of OLE or WoteverTF it is workin' . . . .

    When a system is set up to accomplish some goal, a
    new entity has come into being--the system itself.
    No matter what the "goal" of the system, it
    immediately begins to exhibit system behavior; that
    is, to act according to the general laws that govern
    the operation of all systems. Now the system itself
    has to be dealt with.

    OLE morphed into ActiveX which morphed inco COM and extended to the net with
    DCOM. The DOT.NET framework finally forced it down everybody's throat.

    Innovation: How do we gain a short-legged version of a function that's
    been in GPLed systems for a decade or more, break it enough so that
    it'll take a while to establish compatibility, leave loose ends so that
    we can force an upgrade to a 'new' o/s in a couple of years and make
    people pay for it without getting sued?

    I think the single most important and most used weapon M$ has is the wrapper
    function.

    The method has merit - I've used it to take a DOS interface object
    library for a device that the supplier couldn't afford (they laid off
    the engineers who developed it to cut overhead it appears, and replaced
    them with a doofus phone monkey) to revise to a winblows driver. They
    wouldn't release the source or a useful hardware spec. either. I made it
    work with w98 (barf). Then I spun my own board with better specs. And
    apologized to the rep and the marketing VP for failing to keep their
    sales projection accurate when they stopped by to find out what next
    year's business activity looked like ("We haven't gotten an order for a
    few months...").

    Why did you apologize. If you hadn't have done what you did, the thing
    would have never worked due to their firing of the other guy.
