I've seen references to a source code for a SEAL HTML renderer. Might anyone know where I could get it? If not, we may want to consider some options for a browser (even a primitive one would do, for now). Even a port of lynx would be a start (once we can get networking support, of course). The only decent open source browser cores that I know of are Mozilla and Konqeror, and either one would be a nightmare, if not impossible, to port. Does anyone know of anything else we could look at as a starting point?

Well Seals own html renderer would be a start i suppose... but it's not stable at all... I haven't looked at the source so I can't really say anything about it...

Amos have an web archive somewhere with practically everything released for Seal, I'm sure he got seals html renderer there somewhere...

http://sealsystem.sourceforge.net/files/
is the place...

well, i think you have to grab an older release of Seal to get the html renderer... I don't know if someone ported it so Seal2, but I think someone did... Owen? Anyone?

yes, i think owen did, but he didn't release it because it was seriously flakey

KHTML and Gecko are both really a litte(!) too ambitios i suspect.

I still have my port of the HTML renderer to SEAL 2 on my hard disk. When I get home at the weekend, I'll upload it somewhere.

A Seal2 port would be great if someone can find one. I'd really like to check it out, even if it is flakey. I've been trying to get ahold of the Seal1 binaries, but I keep getting corrupted zip files. If anyone has a copy of Seal1 they would care to pass along, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, I guess I could compile it myself.

I did manage to check it out in BadSeal 0.43. No, its not perfect (most notably it seems to not recognize css), but it works, and that's a big start. Even the way it is, it is certainly much better than nothing at all. I would definitely like to see if it could be further developed once we get the Seal 2 port. With a few basic networking apps, that could mean a big push forward for SEAL

I just checked in my Seal files, I already uploaded the binary version of the Seal2.0 port to Seal already. It's at http://sealsystem.sourceforge.net/darragh/hpage.zip If I have time or if no one else does, i'll upload the source.

Thank you very much, Darragh. For some reason, though, I can't run it. I get an error message that says "Unresolved Externals: _htmlwin_init." Any idea what could be causing this? It could be something I've done wrong. I tried putting the s2a file in the s2a-bin directory with the libraries in the main directory and got the error. So then I moved the s2a to the main directory, too, thinking it may have been some type of problem finding the libraries, but that didn't work either. Or possibly I've received a lobotomy. Has anyone seen this before that can offer some guidance?

Sorry,I know exactly what's wrong, you have to make changes to the registry for it to work, I thought they were written in a text file in the zip but obviously not. I'll take a look to see what the changes are, Owen might know what they are either

I remember now! My Seal files arent the greatest for looking at because I never really make note of where I put things!

You have to add:
Code:
HTMLOADER_BACKGROUND       255,255,255
HTMLOADER_TEXT             255,255,255
HTMLOADER_REFERENCE        0,0,255
HTMLOADER_SEL_REFERENCE    255,0,0


to CURRENT/SEAL/COLORS in the registry. Then load the XDLs in the order LOAD_HTM.XDL then HTMLWIN.XDL.

Thanks. I forgot to do that. That program certainly is flakey. It loads fine, but when I open an html file from my hard drive, it errors out and kicks me out of seal. Oh, well. Is that a common problem? Anyway, thanks again for the files. Maybe once the source code is up we can take a shot at getting it fixed up. At least it works, though, so we have someplace to start.
