   Sorry if I wasn't clear. These 3D real estate sites are certainly
viewable under Mozilla with the right plugin setup. When I tried to get it
working I sent some messages to both the Redhat and Gentoo lists and people
on both reported that they were able to view them correctly with specific

   The problem was that I was not able to view them with my setup, and
typically for life in Linux, the suggestions I got from different people
were just cryptic enough that I never found the solution and gave up. (Out
of date plugins required, or conflicts with other things installed, etc.)

   I'm certain it was my stupidity and not that Linux/Mozilla (or Konqueror,
etc.) can't do it.

   One day someone will do a site like the Plugger-5.0 testing site that
really gets this stuff installed and tested. That's a nice site that goes a
long way towards making sure you can view everything. It helped a lot, but
wasn't perfect.

   Anyway, no big deal.
