(: 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? Maybe... reb:// Any other suggestions for how it could be handled? -- Carl Read
