5. Known Bugs and Problems

The following is a list of known bugs and problems in the current release of WinWeb.

Exiting an External Viewer Switches to Wrong Application
Problem: When an external viewer is launched from within WinWeb and then exiting, the application that is activated is generally not WinWeb but some other Windows application.

and Tags Not Supported
Problem: The current version of WinWeb does not support the HTML and tags.

Formatting in
 Sections Not Correct
Problem: The current version of WinWeb does not always correctly format HTML
 sections.

URLs Are Not Being Constructed Properly
Problem: There is a known problem in the current version of WinWeb in which URLs are constructed that are missing some elements in the directory path such that the document can not be found. Work Around: The URL can be entered manually from the Load URL menu.

URLs Aren't Editable
Problem: Unlike MacWeb, EINet's Macintosh based Web browser, the URLs that are displayed are not editable. Work Around: To enter a URL to jump to press Ctrl-U or select Load URL from the menu.

I Can't Find a Way to Invoke a URL from the Command Line or DDE
Problem: The current version of WinWeb does not support any way of invoking a URL from either the command line or Windows DDE.

I Can't Select Hyperlinks Using My Keyboard
Problem: The current version of WinWeb does not support selecting hyperlinks using the Keyboard.
Work Around: Use the mouse to select hyperlinks.

I Can't Tab Between Fields in a Form
Problem: The current version of WinWeb does not support tabbing between fields in a form.
Work Around: To move to a new field, select it with the mouse.

Inline Pictures Aren't Being Aligned Properly
Problem: Some inline images may not appear aligned correctly in the current version of WinWeb. The ALIGN= attribute of the HTML IMAGE element is not currently supported.

There Isn't Any Way to Tell How Much of a Document Has Been Loaded
Problem: Other than the message that a document or image is being loaded, there are no status indicators to tell how much of a document has been loaded.

I'm Running NetManage Chameleon and WinWeb is Crashing at Address NMPCIP 5:13b7
Problem: We have seen a problem when running WinWeb under NetManage Chameleon in which it crashes at the address NMPCIP 5:13b7. The problem appears to be related to the gethostbyname() function.

Some Links Don't Show Up
Problem: Currently the viewer supports links of the following types: http, file, ftp, and gopher. Since all other links are not currently supported, they do not show up in documents.

Print and Print Preview Sometimes Don't Work
Problem: Ocassionally, the print and print preview functions will only show a blank page rather than the correct output.
Work Around: The problem appears to be intermitent. Simply trying again often results in the correct behavior.

Default Fonts are Too Small to Read
Problem: The default font is sometimes too small and difficult to read. This problem typically occurs on VGA and lower resolution displays.
Work Around: The fonts can be changed in the View Fonts dialog.

Online Help Doesn't Work
Problem: The online and context sensitive help files are not included in this release.

No Icons Displayed on FTP and Gopher Menus
Problem: Typically Gopher and FTP menus display an icon beside each item graphically showing the item's type. The current version of the program does not support this.

Can't Copy Text and Pictures out of a Document
Problem: The current release of the software does not support the cutting of Text and Pictures.
Work Around: HTML files can be downloaded and the information can be cut from a word processor such as write.

Temporary Files in the Root Directory Not Deleted
Problem: WinWeb sometimes creates temporary files with numeric filenames in the root directory. If the program crashes or doesn't exit properly, these files are not deleted.
Work Around: When WinWeb is not running, delete the files manually from either DOS or the File Manager.

I Get the Message "Can't Find WINSOCK.DLL"
Problem: WinWeb assumes that you already have a TCP/IP network installed. If you do not have a TCP/IP network installed, you get the message "Can't Find WINSOCK.DLL".
Work Around: Install a TCP/IP network.


6. WINWEB.INI Format

The following is a description of the entries in the WINWEB.INI located in the Windows directory. If an entry is not present, the indicated default value is used.

The format for each entry is the MIME type followed by a comma, and then the command to be executed to launch the viewer. For Example:

Entry0=image/gif,winvoke ingo.inv lview31

Note: WinWeb starts with Entry0, Entry1, Entry2, etc. until a blank entry is found. If Entry0 is not present in the WINWEB.INI file, WinWeb automatically creates a default [Launch] section.

[HotList]
This section contains the entries in the user defined hotlist.

Entry[n]=
The format for each entry is the descriptive text followed by a command, and then the URL to be invoked when the hot list entry is selected. For example:

[Extensions]
This section contains the entries that define how file extensions are mapped to MIME types when downloading a file.

Entry[n]=
The format for each entry is the file extension, followed by the MIME type to which it is mapped, and then a designation of the file contents. For example:

Entry16=.gif,image/gif,binary

Valid designators for the file contents are "7bit", "8bit" and "binary".

Note: WinWeb loads starting with Entry0, Entry1, Entry2, etc. until a blank entry is found. If Entry0 is not present in the WINWEB.INI file, WinWeb automatically creates a default [Extensions] section.
