Dear Jerry

I read your article on the work done in Lotus notes.  

I'm not sure, but it seems to me that the patent refers explicitly to
objects that occupy a display area within the containing hypermedia
document.  What the application seems to have in mind is interactively
controllable objects that will appear as an integral part of the document -
moving and scrolling with the document as necessary.  

Here is (part of) the text of the application:
to automatically invoke said executable application to execute on said
client workstation in order to display said object and enable interactive
processing of said object within a display area created at said first
location within the portion of said first distributed hypermedia document
being displayed in said first browser-controlled window

As far as I could see from your illustrations, the Lotus Notes
implementation did not include this refinement.
