I've uploaded a simple NetSurf theme (just a Spritefile) at
To install, drag the !NetSurf dir over the top of your application,
select Choices from the iconbar>Themes>Metal, quit and reload.
Based on MIT's Galeon project's Remembrance theme, with an original
throbber I'm getting to like :-)
Please let me know likes or dislikes. The whole thing is very beta and
will be adapted as Netsurf grows/changes.

is a link to the World Wide Web Consortium's validator. Fill in a URL,
and see how many errors it generates. <sarcasm>As the W3C are generally
accepted to have some small expertise in how to produce standards compliant
web pages</sarcasm>, you've got significant ammunition to throw at whichever
company's site is broken, and 'well it works OK on Internet Explorer'
cuts no ice whatsoever against 'according to the global web standards body,
your site is invalid.'
Incidentially, AUS-CERT has advised that for security reasons users /should
not use internet Explorer at all!/

If you have problems with a site, try validating it. If it doesn't validate,
complain. Escalate the matter as high as possible - preferably above the
level of the stupid pseudo-techies for whom 'it works OK on IE' is an
adequate defence for incompetent web page coding.
It doesn't matter what browser you're using - if the page doesn't validate,
it's not guaranteed to work properly on /any/ browser and /therefore it damn
well should be fixed/.

I've been putting my toe in this area every so often and have been using
Netsurf on my standalone RiscPC. However, for the last few weeks so so,
none of the test builds have worked :-(
NetSurf loads onto the iconbar OK, but as soon as it tries to render a
page (even its own start page) it just gets stuck with the hourglass
running and "Processing document" in the info bar. Only Alt-Break gets
me out of it.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a solution?

Thank you! B-)
I'm now running !Flash just downloaded off jmb's site, and the latest
build of !NetSurf, but clicking on "Win an Iyonix" (to test Flash) in
www.iyonix.com, I get a black background, within which a small rectangle
briefly appears in the top left corner, and then Netsurf says "Document
done". <Flash$Dir>.errors is empty, and that was all after a soft
What am I doing wrong?

That's very nice of you :-) Probably to best way to send me the £85 is

In the meantime, I find it hard to believe that the Netsurf developers
have gone to the effort of supplying a "small" build if they don't think
it'll work on <RO4. How many 8MB, RISC OS 4 RiscPCs are there out there?
I posted about this some time ago, but nobody seemed to know.
If I use a recent version of Netsurf to look at The Register, or even
Netsurf's own site I seem to get white text on a white background and have
had to go back to a version from September 25th to be able to see these
sites. It doesn't affect sites from my own hard discs, though.
It would seem to be a problem on my machine; can anyone give me clues where
to look next?
I hope this is the correct place to make this query.
I changed from the September build that I had been using successfully to the
22/11 build. When I click to load, I get the message "Unicode resources not
I've checked the Run file to see if there is anything to help there, but this
is not mentioned. Have I missed something between September and now? Any help

I suggest that it would be handy to have a menu item to open up the hot
list. It's kind of untidy at the moment: you open up a window, then
click on the hot list icon, but now you've got a window that won't be
used, so you have to close it again.
