Thank you very much for the 'much-needed' boost to my ego. :))

Quite correct.
Only time will tell.

I am sorry to say that I am not the programmer to look to for making
such extensive changes/additions.

I can make little 'tweaks' here-and-there in the SRC code which can make
existing features work a little better or a little differently than they
did before.

I can even make some small additions which add new features.

(a few examples)
added IgnoreJS,
added IgnoreCID,
added Https2Http,
added $K,
changed, POP3.LOG to make it more verbose,
fixed the "Cacheindex.dgi bug" in WWWMAN.EXE,
fixed the " 'Begin' located at start of line bug" in INSIGHT.EXE,
(and a few other small changes).

But as for adding JS support.....
I must admit that this is beyond my programming abilities. :(

We need programmers who have better abilities than mine.

Two of them come to mind right-off-the-bat.

Bernie and Clarence. ;-)

Please allow me to apologize to all list members for making those
'snide remarks' in my earlier replies.
