I have a question on embedding netsurf in my application.
Basically, I need to render html and css and then display it as a
picture, so I think only layout engine will be necessary. I'd prefer
to use netsurf as a library, is this possible?
thanks in advance

Well, the new little smileyface icon for an individual item
(content/png) is practically invisible - white on pale grey - so I'm not
quite sure how that was intended to work. :-(

This is with RISC OS 5.16 flashed, and NetSurf r10900.
I'm getting used to the new much smaller font size in the Global
History and Hotlist windows (gets a lot more text in), but I have
found that the first time in a session that I open the Global History
the "Three weeks ago" directory is open, which I don't want.
Is this an oddity here, or a feature or a bug? If it's the last, I'll
do a bug report when I get a round tuit.

Thanks for the explanation.

In the following partial list, my edited link names are on the upper
line, and the new names, generated by NetSurf, are on the lower line.

I don't understand how NetSurf generates the new names because, since
installing r10903, I have not visited any of the links, and the data is
not present in the old Hotlist html file. eg the old Hotlist html for
the last item above is:
pound / cedi</a></li>
The link name generated by NetSurf appears to be the page title so,
given time, will NetSurf fetch the current page title for every link? If
so, it would seem that there is no point in editing the link name,
because NetSurf will change it back to the page title.

Thank you for the link. I had not previously seen that page.

For any non-NetSurf questions, head on down to the comp.sys.acorn newsgroups. You've probably also already found:

I am new to riscos and Netsurf so this could just be ignorance on my part.
I am trying to download makemodes.arc from the acorn site but netsurf
simply displays the whole file instead of giving me the download box
which it does do for a .zip file.
Is this a riscos configuration thing or Netsurf.

Full-save the page from NetSurf, then open the 'index' file in a text
editor, and search for jpg . (Images which have been correctly displayed
by NetSurf will have lost their file extensions.) The object can than be
downloaded from its url. Change the file extension as appropriate, and
copy the file into the full-save directory. Edit the 'index' file so
that it links to the image in the full full-save directory. Loading the
full-save should then show the 'missing' image, in the correct place.
