Is that a beta version? it's as final as windows mosaic 3.0 ever got. during work on the 3.0 version, major new user interface capabilities and a few HTML additions took precedence over "minor" details like the appearance of icons such as these. mag p.s.: i can't resist: despite small problems like these, and large problems like lack of frames and applet support, and despite the fact that development on it basically stopped over a year ago, windows mosaic has *still* never been threatened as the leader in user configurability. -- .---o Tom Magliery, Research Programmer (217) 333-3198 .---o `-O-.
