(: I'll remember it though. Sounds like a name an Egyptian Pharaoh
may have had. I'd keep it in mind for another program one day Anton.

That's a good idea, and it works fine with me as far as I can tell.
One problem though is it still doesn't cater for the Reb-path, so to
speak. At the Desktop level, your...
could be described as this...
and it'd be good if the Desktop could handle that. (It'd have to
drill down a page at a time to get there so it could find the real
URLs of course, but there'd be no need for it to waste time
displaying each page as it passed by.) A new protocol perhaps?
Any other suggestions for how it could be handled?
