>From the LEGAL file:
A) Wang contends that its U.S. Patent No. 4, 751,669 ("the '669
Patent") disclosing a "video text" system, is infringed by the following
functionality in the Netscape Navigator code: 1) the animated logo and
status line indicators --See Claims 1,8 and 9; 2)  the "File Save As"
function --See Claims 23-27; 3) Bookmarks and Rename Bookmarks in the
Properties window --See Claims 20-22; 4) storing HTML, GIF, and JPEG
files and adding filename extensions based on mime types (performed in
Windows OS) --See Claim 38.  Netscape believes the '669 Patent is
invalid and non-infringed. Netscape is vigorously defending against
Wang's claims.
a patent on filename extensions based on mime types!?!?

Good god, this patent stuff is crazy.

Hey.  It has HTTP/1.1 support in?  Interesting.  Didn't know that.  Wonder
if it works.  Guess I have to dig up motif.
