Well the url-viewer worked out really great. Basicly a
pipe job in a DOS batch file for me on this system,
PC-Pine in Windoozzzz. Simple. I was looking at Save,
Export, TakeAddr, ViewHilite & ViewAttach to determine
the best solution. TakeAddr would be great & sensible if
more open. Taking an address of email or website is
about the same. I am taking bookmarks more often than
viewing, so no trouble at all with your concern. Not now
I now hit Enter twice & the URL is taken for an html
hotlink in a bookmark file for direct browser access
later. Makes it fast, to quick view when online, & deal
with as required once I view the website. Slick process.

That works out too, very well for the few views I need

If a constant need to change back & forth - Yes, but
that is not my case presently. And macros work wonders.
I visited your webpage Eduardo, for your patch. I am not
happy, you are deleting the webpage? I just found out
about it. Guess I better get busy taking what I might
Can it not be turned over to somebody else to continue
what you started? I understand your private desires,
but is total termination required? Shucks, just let it
float unattended with a caveat to anybody that finds it.
Anyway I thank you guys!
The Best to You & Yours,
