[REBOL] Re: REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha)

In IE clicking any hyperlink causes the browser to navigate unless the
event is cancelled. The way around would be to target a hidden iframe
or frame, which (In IE, at least) is still a part of the history (back
button navigates the iframe back.) You don't get a blank page, but you
get an extra history entry.
The other way could be to handle the event with a little script and add
the iframe dynamically using the DOM. IE is very kind about this sort
of thing, and since creating the iframe with src already set doesn't
cause the navigation event, so it is as if the history went nowhere, the
current location only adding more content.
I'll look at this a little more and see if I can figure out ways to
prevent the navigation to a new page with the current plugin.
