I have downloaded the latest test build r12932, and find that it
treats frames in an entirely different way to what it test builds did
less than 3 months ago.
Positioning the mouse pointer over any one frame and rotating the
scroll wheel used to scroll only the frame that it was underneath it;
now it scrolls the whole caboodle, and reveals a previously unseen
blank frame at the bottom. (??)
It also scrolls (using the slider bars) much less smoothly, and rather

There is a problem with accented characters in some webpage text
areas. (and as this note contains accented characters I fear it may
not be readable by all mail clients)
These two links demonstrate the problem.
Link (a) accepts accents, link (b) does not.
You can see the behavior by:- setting the language pairs to
Spanish/English, and pasting the following text
SILLÓN: respuesta positiva de Yoko Ono a John.
then clicking Translate.
For me, at any rate, the Google page replaces the accented character
by a question mark.
If I replace the accented "ø" by "O" Google manages to read it.
The Yahoo page works without complaint.
I think this is a NetSurf feature rather than Google's as on Linux
Firefox Google accepts the accents. And FWIW NetSurf has always
behaved this way.

Every picture I view from the Railway Herald site's Imaging Centre
causes "Error converting PNG" to flash briefly on the bottom line,
but only when the image is viewed for the first time - refreshing
the image, or going back to one recently visited, doesn't show the
message. The main image is always displayed successfully, though.
I've just had an email reporting a problem downloading BookMaker from
the web site ( http://www.bookmaker.riscos.org.uk/ - an alias
for http://tigger.orpheusweb.co.uk/bookmaker/) using NetSurf (r13161);
clicking on the download link had no effect.
The download worked when he tried with Oregano; and NetSurf would
download files from other sites with no problems.
I've tried, and also failed to download the zip file - but if I
adjust-clicked the link, the download window appeared and I could
download the file. It also works if you use the menu button over the
link and then follow Object -> Link -> Download Target
After a bit more playing around, the problem seems to be that the link
is on a page that is part of a frameset.
NetSurf is perfectly happy to download the same file from the "No
frames" part of the web site, so I suspect an error in NetSurf.

Is this a bug in NetSurf, or is it an error in the site's source
