Most systems do not try to implement an HTML viewer.  Instead, they
talk to whatever web browser you are already using.  Why can't Squeak
do the same?  There ought to be some way ti send a URL to an already
open browser and tell it to open a window on it.  This is probably
done differently on the Mac, WIndows and Linux, but we out to be able
to make a simple Squeak API to hide this.
