IMHO, the only tags that would *required* to be implemented are <A> (for the hyperlinks), <br>/<p>, and the forms-lot. Everything beyond that is pure luxury *cough* :) > 320x200 image takes 8K if monochrome.

Well, if the results of Netscape on a monochrome (1-bit) Xterminal are an indication, I'd say that it'll be rather useless. > I need to see it working first... still thinking that doing that in text > only is not a bad idea. I'd recomend beginning with a text-only browser, for it will be a lot simpeler than a graphical one. If you manage to do a text-browser (which I doubt), then you could consider upgrading it to a graphical one. This all said, I had this nice little device sitting on my desk yesterday, consisting of a 8051 at 24 MHz (Comparable with a 2 MHz 6502 :-D ) and an Ethernet controller. They managed to put a web *server* in there, which had even enough free code-space to store objects locally (They used a P89C51RD+, which has 64K FLASH rom, alongside with 1 K RAM. It's not completely unfeasable that the Ethernet controller has some on-chip RAM as well, though) Very nifty. Plug it in a HUB, and your fridge sends you an e-mail if the beer is cold enough. -- Martijn van Buul - Pino@dohd.org - http://www.stack.nl/~martijnb/ Geek code: G-- - Visit OuterSpace: mud.stack.nl 3333 Kees J.
