I had basically come to that conclusion myself. I do need to be able to
create "context menus" ( right-click menus ) within the captured page,
but I suspect that I will be able to do this much more easily than using
the "new window" procedure that was already being used.
I also discovered the HTML "<object ></object >" tags, but I can't seem
to get the "captured page" to render. I keep getting 404 errors, and it
doesn't seem to respect the size of the enclosing <div >, as the W3
documentation seems to suggest it should. ( at present, the 404 error is
showing in a micro-window, well inside the boundaries of the 3/4 grid
frame. I was using the captured page's contents, as returned by CURL,
as the "data" component of the "<object>". No go.
