As Michael's mail might hint at, unfortunately we have
no-one on the project who is dedicated to the RISC OS
frontend. As such, our use of NetSurf on RISC OS is
purely incidental. Michael will run it up to check layout
stuff, and John-Mark sometimes manages to fix a bug
sight-unseen, but mostly we're a bit stuck on RISC OS
I'll echo that :-(
Do you happen to know of someone prepared to take on the
NetSurf RISC OS frontend and give it the love we know it
I'm sorry, but I don't. I'm just a user, myself, and a very
grateful one for all the work that's gone into NetSurf.

This implies that there's something squiffy in the
delivery of the data to the content model. Have you since
encountered this behaviour on any other site?
No, I haven't but that's probably more a reflection of the
amount of surfing I do from within RISC OS than anything
else. I use NetSurf for checking a lottery syndicate using
Stuart Allison's !Lottery. I suppose I could check for a
suitable program for Windows but it's soooo convenient to
do it from RISC OS.
Thanks for your prompt response.
