CSS: Noone does full CSS, NetSurf does quite well.
Excel: Not a standard. Someone should use the OpenOffice loader or something
ROL flogs RISC OS 4 for all emulators Download a RISC OS 4.02 ROM image for a fiver from RISCOS Ltd's website from Monday and use it with your favourite machine emulator, such as RPCEmu. The package is set to include the !Boot and application and utilities files too. ROL boss Paul Middleton said: "We have been looking at ways of making a low cost, or 'virtually free' version of RISC OS available for some time." Keep an eye on ROL's new sales website. The ROM image, which contains the operating system code usually found on the ROS ROM chips, will be available on CD too. 17 comments, latest by Calculon on 13/12/08 9:34PM. Published: 6 Dec 2008
