I'm sorry to go slightly off-topic, but a co-worker here has a major
problem which has gotten no response from the Netscape list, so I ask
your pardon for borrowing your brains for a while.

Soemone changed the setup for her MIME types so that text/x-sgml tries
to save the file to disk rather than displaying it in raw text
form. In the Options/Helpers panel, the "Display in Browser" is greyed
out, so it can't be switched back. Switching it to "Ask User" only
lets you pick "Save" or "Run App", not display it in the Netscape
window. This is clearly a bug, but I can't find a way round it.

This is Netscape 3.0 Gold under Win95, but I've uninstalled (and
wiped) and reinstalled everything from 2.1 onwards and I can't find
where to unset the flags.
