hello patrick,

I have tried your advice and and it works just fine, at least when your
expectations are as modest as mine. as you said in a later post, it adds
another step before you can see what interests you but I don't mind. It
is surprising enough that there is a browser so old that bridges the
http1.0 to http1.1 gap.
Just being curious: what does O1G1 mean?
you are very critical about the update you created then. I am still
curious and I would give it a try if you could spare a copy.
many thanks
