Very nice. Can I make a request? Although you already say one
can load and display HTML files from disk.
I would like a stripped down version that doesn't require Marinetti,
Proxies, Bookmarks, History, Cache, Logs,
passwords, and loads other than the HTML filetype .etc.
There is no HTML file type, and if you just want to parse and view html
files from disk, without all the rest of the features that a web browser
involves, you have been able to do that with Spectrum for many years.
Chris Vavruska's HTMLView FinderExtra will also do that. You can get
both on my website:
Spectrum, and many other Text Editors, will load most any type of file.
In Spectrum, hold down the CA key as you open a file into the Editor,
and it will load any file type. This is all explained in the Spectrum

Something that I can just enter commands in a text file with bold
facing, centering, fonts, printing and so forth still enabled.
And clicking on a link will scroll you further down in the file to a preset
page or header, or a link to load native
graphics into the web page. Mostly will be used just as a glorified text
viewer that doesn't have Control characters\
for different formats, but uses the HTML commands.
I started a web viewer (not a browser :) for the IIe that displays text in
dbl hi-res mode. It has some links capability
clickable with a mouse, underline, bold face. Would like a program
that runs under GSOS for the same purpose.
And will eventually try to make a hi-res version that can have all
three programs compatible with the html commands.
Thanks if you can do this.
First of all, none of the Tools available for the IIgs at the moment can
handle text and embedded graphics, so you would have to write your own
to do that.
As to the kind of viewer you would like to use, that it not something
that I would adapt Webber to do, so I am afraid you would have to write
that yourself. If you need to parse HTML, Tool 130 will do that for you:
Webber can already be used to navigate pages of text and local links for
HTML files loaded from disk, just don't add any external links if you
don't want to go online, but as the primary reason for Webber is as a
web browser, Marinetti must be present what it starts up.
