    I think the last time I built libwww for Win16 was in 1995, and I don't
    really remember all the details.

    But you can try!

    Look for WINDOWS and WIN32 in the code (*.c and *.h/*.html) and make sure
    they are "correct" (i.e. WIN32 is really for WIN32 specific things. I just
    noticed something in HTWWWStr.c that it should probably be a generic

    The other main problem is memory allocation. If I remember well, the
    malloc on Win16 only allow you to allocate 64K of memory, so you may want
    change the HTMemory.c module to use GlobalAlloc/GlobalDealloc (is that how
    they are called ?)

Hope this helps, and good luck!
