I want full screen for connected presentation, public projection displays
and kiosk use.
A target application domain is public gathering and transporatation hubs:
airports, stations, malls, etc. The 'local' end of these is shiops,hotels,
Can't test the X-windows or ones live here right now, but it really sounds

For example on Win32 with IE, including a View button link to screens such
[browse "-k http://188.8.131.52/nomadics/matrix1.htm"]
