How can one loooong email with all the replies in all the threads
which people haven't snipped repeated again and again possibly be
less annoying than 40 emails? Just curious.
I know subscribers on this list are good at trimming quotes, but
there are plenty of others where it just doesn't happen.
These taglines aren't always all that interesting...

Trouble is, a lot of folks are very bad at snipping, so when they reply to
a digest version, we none digest receivers can a get a bucket load of sh
one tee as well.

Thanks for your replies - now have the problem sorted:
I was opening up Choices via !Netsurf.OpenChoices which opens up:
...which I thought would be identical to:
Sorry, Steve, I have no idea what "NetSurf's internal theme download
handler" is - the theme files were manually installed (D&D from
another machine) these are filetyped 'Data' and have always worked OK.
The themes from http://www.netsurf-browser.org/downloads/themes/
download as 'Archive' files on this Iyonix, and the instructions on
the same page "Select a theme link from below and NetSurf will ask for
confirmation before the theme is installed." doesn't seem to work.
Just to complicate things a bit, they download as 'XML' files on my
Trying to install Netsurf Themes to !Netsurf on an Armini
On Risc PC & Iyonix, new themes were added to
Choices:WWW.NetSurf.Themes, but cannot do this on the Armini - get the
error message: "Path variable had multiple entries and was used for a
D&D of !Netsurf with themes added from Iyonix to Armini fails, also.
OK, so what do I need to do?
Just to say thank you. The browser
works fine on FreeBSD ia64. The only
other broser that works seems to be firefox3,
which will be obsolete very soon. So, it
seems netsurf will be the only nearly full
featured browser available on this platform.
By the way, is extjs [1,2] any help for
your js project? It builds fine on FreeBSD ia64 for me.

No matter which Netsurf I try (and I have tried r13506 and r12638)
Netsurf always crashes just as I try to save the second page.
It saves the first OK.
But always crashes when the 'save' box comes up for saving a second
Maybe it makes a difference which site I am saving from?
In which case, I am using the input page of the BSBI site:
I type in a genera (here are a few valid ones for others to try:
rumex, daucus, persicaria, mentha, geranium)
Then wait for the page to come up, press menu, and Save> SaveAs and
drag it to a disc
On the second go, it always crashes and exits with a log file, which I
have saved, but baulk at the idea of sending it off - since I hear
folk say it doesn't go easily, being too big I hear.
Anyway, here are the last few lines of the log file:
