No, not at the moment. This is because the current version is an alpha
one with lots of functionnalities still missing, espacialy concerning
the audio support: the audio file is loaded during the presentation
(Java limitations...) and it creates delays over the Internet.

It works !!! The demo given within the product works fine without
any web server. The only thing is to be sure that the media files
used in your tests are located _under_ the "CLASSPATH" given in
your HTML page (Java Security).

Sorry for the mistake. SOJA works fine with both lowercase and uppercase
at the moment. I will prompt an error message in the next version if
users try to use uppercase.

Thank you for testing SOJA
