[ about mosaic applets]

I see nothing in this that is especially NCSA Mosaic specific, although the tome 
of it suggests that the author is thinking exclusively in terms of NCSA Mosaic 
for X.

Could I sugest that the few remaining places where X resources and so on are 
mentioned be revised ( alternatives are given anyway) so it applies to all 
versions of Mosaic; and further that it be made a general interface so that an 
applet written to the spec will also work with other conforming browsers on 
whatever platform?

I feel this would then become a very valuable proposal which I suspect would be 
supported by browser implementors as it would reduce the burden on them from 
feature requests.
