Shouldn't make a difference. NetSurf relies on the Content-Type header
sent by the server. File extensions and their contents are irrelevant.
I'm not sure I understand what that means, but don't bother

Given that frames aren't implemented this isn't surprising.
OK. I wasn't aware of that.
One thing I am amazed at is the speed of rendering. I thought O2
was pretty fast, but Netsurf is far faster.
Thanks to all those developing this browser.
