Hi All,

Yesterday I sent a message about the html Search Engine not working
properly.  I repeat that message below.  I received some suggestions that
I should have Java running.  I take that to mean that I have "enabled"
Java in the preferences list inside Mozilla.  Yes, it's "running", or so
it appears.  I also opened (not from within R) the html help files using
Internet Explorer 5.2 (Mac OS X) and experienced the same problem with the
search engine html page in R not working, and, yes, Java is indicated as
enabled.  So, initial evidence seems to indicate that the solution is not
so simple as to have Java running.  Still, I am not so savvy about these
things that the solution could not be this simple.  So, other suggestions
are appreciated.  Thanks!


PS  In my previous message I (actually mozilla -version) indicated
that I was running mozilla 5.0.  Apparently this is a futuristic version
and I may be running something like mozilla 1.0.  Suffice it to say, there
seems to be some conflicting information on reporting the version number
of mozilla.  Anyway, I don't think this is relevant in this case.
