I know that your question was directed at Robert's friend (The Browser Wizard), but I spent several hours at Microsoft's site looking for reasons and work-arounds. No luck so far .... :-( The RealPlayer plugin can be embedded in the browser or launched separately. When launched separately, the linking page stays put, so, of course, it *can* be done. But how? It appears to be an ActiveX (a.k.a. list soooooooo long that it is pointless to list!) component. I looked for other plugins that had similar behavior and are open source, and have not yet found one. Here is a shot in the dark: Is it possible that Microsoft's MFC foundation class for ActiveX addesses this issue? Just a thought. --Scott Jones
