Newton WWW 1.1 Demo - Before you start downloading the browser please
make sure that you have a DIGITAL Alpha or a SUN Workstation with an internet connection
somewhere and access to them via a serial or a telephone line. If not, you can install the
Newton package on your PDA, but you only can use it in demo-mode. The browser provides
textual data presentation as well as image display or searchable index handling. Moreover
users are able to store the information in the build in notebook, to print it or
redistribute it by mail or by fax. Works on a 100, and now the 110 and 120 screen sizes.

nHTTPd, a Newton Web Server, is stable enough for folks to experiment
with. nHTTPd, documentation, and source code are now available at
http://www.lothlorien.com/~dove/pda/ for those interested. As with all of our efforts,
these packages are available as-is and free of charge. It should probably be stated up
front that these packages are of primary interest to developers, rather than end users...
but if you're interested in writing plug-ins to serve Web documents from your Newton, or
add sounds to your Newton's sound registry, come on by and check 'em out!
nHTML is a HTML authoring tool for the Newton. HTML stands for
"HyperText Markup Language" and is the so-called language of the World Wide Web.
With nHTML, users can create HTML documents with ease! The power of web authoring in the
palm of your hand! nHTML is currently in the Public Beta stage. Foundation Systems feels
it is stable enough for public usage. However, because it is in the beta stage, there are
a number of features that are either disabled or missing in the final release. Credit:
