Editor's note: these tips are from OS/2 users and in some cases can not be verified
by myself. Please heed this as a warning that if you are not sure about something,
don't do it.
You've got to do some tricks to have it find OS/2. It's even listed in the help
under the "details" link:
Google ignores common words and characters, known as stop words. Google automatically
disregards such terms as "http" and "com," as well as all single
digits and single letters, because they rarely help narrow a search, while slowing
Use the + operator to include stop words in your search.
Be sure to include a space before the + operator. Include
the + operator in phrase searches as well.
To find pages about OS/2:
"os/+2" Google Search
It's not an underline... it's a 0-height input box. The problem is that we are
defaulting to the "Courier New" font, but that font doesn't exist on your
machine, for some reason... so when the input box is created, the font height is
queried as 0. If you switch your default Fixed Width font to something else (such
as "Courier"), all should be well.
Jeff's team member Mike Kaply suggests the same thing on comp.os.os2.apps:
If anyone is having a problem where web pages that have fixed with pages display
blank, change your fixed width font from Courier New to Courier. It appears that
with the Matrox driver, Courier New is unavailable for some reason.

In my example, I have created a 32 frame animation with one extra frame at the beginning for the still frame. I have two files for the animations. Now when you start Netscape, you get a custom animation. I have attached two animations to get you started. You can experiment if you like - the frames do not have to be square, and they do not have to be 16 or 32 pels high or wide.
