Thank you very much for looking into this. I am sure that your
idea will prove very useful. Even if it turns out that for
compatibility reasons files have to be served by a web server,
it is not difficult to install one and use it only locally,
e.g. apt-get install apache or zope or even one of the "tiny"
servers like: that can be made
(mostly) transparent to a user on both Linux and Windows.

Or we could just add a couple of extra lisp commands to open
and send the contents of the file ourselves. It's not a big
deal. The main thing is that you found a way to call a Spad
routine from within a very small and single web server. That
was really what I was looking for in:

Do you have an explanation why you want/need to use the
*docfun* name format? I recall something about such mangled
names being "global" or in some other way special in scope.
Is that right? Is that why it works, incontrast to the
lambda function I tried? Perhaps rather than "semi-
hardwiring" the name, we could assign it to a local static
variable and use that?

There is a way to chage the configuration of FireFox:

And Konqueror is supposed to just give a warning. Did you see
