Subject: printing WAIS documents

Viola uses the line mode browser to convert html documents to
text. In doing it for WAIS documents, I encounter two problems:

1 - the URL of those documents contain ";" telling the shell that
    the instruction ended. you ahve  to go out of viola, and enclose
    it in quotation marks.

2 - Even after doing that, I get a message saying:

    "Fatal Error:  Returned message too large"

Is the documnet to long for the line mode browser, or is the URL to long ?

Example - printing a page from the Usenet Cookbook whose URL is:;3=0000000223WWP%20;7=%00;

Any idea where what is wrong ? Viola has no difficulty displaying the page.
