On RISC OS 5 source code release revealed:

I can't see how this can be bad news, but I hope we're not kidding ourselves about how 'good' it is - ie the extent to which it will spark a new wave of development for the OS. If it generates more interest in commercial and cross-platform use that will be great, but I wonder if other more developed systems (WindowsCE, Linux etc) haven't already occupied a lot of that ground.

Incidentally, how do you get hold of Browse? I've never seen it available for purchase or download.

Thanks again VinceH (it's B Stewart by the way).

I sort of though that was the case (mimemap not relevant off-line) and the stylesheet was wrongly typed as DOS, but sadly correcting it to CSS has had no effect on the resulting page. I'l investigate the mimemap angle, or maybe I just write rubbish CSS.

Thanks both VinceH and tlsa - I'm staring at a Windows PC at work at the moment so can't try anything, but it was simply loading a page from the backup of my site on my hard drive which caused the problem (so no network and no 'full saved' pages). It could be the file typing and/or mimemap thing. I'll check tonight.

Downloaded it yesterday and it seems good, although it seemed to be ignoring some aspects of CSS when pages were loaded from the local PC rather than the web (ie the same page looked different). Not sure a browser without JavaScript will ever be my number one.

In reply to dms:

Yes you're right and I shouldn't have added to the trivial thread.

But it's not as tasteless as having a Google ad for paragliding stuck on the side of the page.
