Um, are we talking about code designed to display as code (syntax coloring)=
 or encoded data designed to be processed separately (.hqx and .zip files),=
 or code meant to be *run* upon receipt? Clarification needed...

Anyone who has Netscape 2.0 (or any other browser supporting tables, font=
 coloring, and charset META tag) might be interested to see my AppleScript=
 Snippets page <URL:http://www.natural-innovations.com/boo/as-snippets.html>=
. I've been coloring the syntax manually, and of course it would be nice not=
 to have to do that... <G>  (Viewing document source on that page is not for=
 the faint of heart!)
