I have the solution for my posting below, although I don't understand it. For hyperlinks of the form 'message URL http://<url>', FrameMaker correctly opens the default browser. However, for hyperlinks that omit the protocol field, i.e. 'message URL <url>', for example 'message URL www.microsoft.com', it opens any version of Netscape that it can find.
