Are there any browsers which pass on parameter info to
external applications ?  how about Netscape, Rob M ?

There was a call to have things like the BASE URL passed
to applications, when it appeared in the content-type header.
There's a .mailcap trick to specify any parameter name to
be used as an argument for the application, e.g. soemthing

application/postscript; pdfghostview %s -url [base]

where [base] is replaced with the value assigned to the parameter
"base" in the content type.

Does anyone have a .mailcap entry that uses parameter info ?
