Subject: Accessing CSO servers via Web browsers


Is there any reason why I should not be able to reliably query CSO servers 
e.g. <gopher://> via any WWW browser.  NCSA Mosaic 
for X (2pre6) handles it ok, www on Unix seems to freeze as does 
NCSA Mosaic for Mac (B5).  Havn't tried Lynx yet, but that's next.

The reason I ask is that I have placed a URL in one field of my  record on 
a CSO server which, because the text seems to be returned as <pre>, is 
presented as a link when accessed using Mosaic for X.

It seemsed kinda neat so I'd like to recommend it to people if I was sure 
it was reliable.
