No problem and thanks for reminding me. I just did a "quick fix" for the
problem that is commit the code that I found to squeakvm.org repository:


This includes the netscape plugin (under NPSqueak) and the ActiveX
control (under SqueakOCX2 - the other one was an older version that
didn't support the url fetching mechanisms etc)

In unspeakably ugly terms. ActiveX is nothing for the faint-hearted. The
code requires magical MSVC invokations that I'm not even sure recent
versions will handle correctly. YMMV.
