Thank you Owen. That got me started.
It is working perfectly with my default Firefox browser but I would like it to
work in Internet Explorer on my secondary monitor. 
The Help system says 'If you selected "Web browser", you must decide here
which browser to use, and how to invoke it, by entering the command that will
be used to run the browser.'
Can this be done for Windows XP Pro? If so, how?
