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.
