Hi All

For anyone using Mozilla or any other platform that understands XUL, I 
have just written a very simple in-browser keypad programme for 
locator-only navigation.

I actually wrote it so that I could "surf" with one hand whilst the 
other is occupied with essential caffeine and calories, but feel it may 
be of interest to anyone working without a keyboard.

The code is at <http://www.mss.cx/keypad.xul> and the associated 
stylesheet (all 20 lines of it) at <http://www.mss.cx/keypad.css> 
Whilst this works fine over my intranet, I can't get it to execute from 
my web server - something wrong with the mime types, I guess. 
Interested parties will probably need to download and use locally.

If this is of use to anyone, please feel to take it and use it; 
extension/modification is simple - a little knowledge of XML and 
JavaScript is sufficient, even for those who have never looked at XUL 
before.

Cheers

M
