can anybody suggest a trick whereby i could make a Netsurf window
at a certain size and position on screen, to display a local file?
the page in mind is the control panel for my networked
it's useful to have it handy during a print job without taking up too
much screen space.
Alternatively, if you have a tailored browser homepage (I use the same
one across all browsers on all OSes on my local network) you could
include an <iframe> of the appropriate size and position containing your
printer's home page. I use one here to include a local webcam which
'refreshes itself' but it could just as easily hold any page, local or

(i.e. it's not a copy, it's my actual homepage here served by WebJames)
Warning: some people will hate this page with a vengeance. At times I do.
It may pass the validator but If you are easily offended by too much
content, an over-use of tables for layout, unnecessary transparency,
garish background images and some links which seem simply broken, walk
away now. Thank you. It has been gestating since 2004 but has grown into
a ratty toddler. ;-)
It is interesting to use a mainstream browser alongside NetSurf to see
the differences in rendering. Not many, really, except the lack of
opacity in NetSurf's CSS and its occasional extra line feed in table
script. Shame. ;-)
