Would some good soul please have a look a the plugintest.html page, which  
on my platform starts with the following text in the plugin window: Hello  
Plugin World!

This window was opened by some code in the file plugintest.sts, which was  
downloaded by your web browser. The browser started the Squeak Virtual  
Machine (C:\Program Files\Opera\Program\Plugins\Squeak.exe) with a default  
object image (C:\Program Files\Opera\Program\Plugins\SqueakPlugin.image).

Since you are reading this I guess all is okay then ...

Click FIND in the Navigator bar below to load some example projects. You  
can get a larger view by clicking "Escape Browser".

--------my observations:

1) there is no Navigation bar (so no escape from the browser)
2) the heigth of the plugin is insufficient for reaching all items of the  
world menu (i.e. the desktop menu)

Since this is a test page, me too would like to see it work.

BTW the Fullwindow mode link works here and let me access the desktop menu  
 from the world menu.

Thank you in advance.
