Subject: CREATING A JAVASCRIPT BUTTON doc section too pessimistic

Same as last message (just with a subject since I often don't look at the ones that don't have a subject myself): The CGI man page section CREATING A JAVASCRIPT BUTTON contains this: button() produces a button that is compatible with Netscape 2.0's JavaScript. When it's pressed the fragment of JavaScript code pointed to by the -onClick parameter will be executed. On non-Netscape browsers this form element will probably not even display. which I think is unduly pessimistic now. No reason for a lovely module like to look out of date! Britton

I think the "non-Netscape" language was removed some time ago. Also, the next release will be removing a maximal amount of the Netscape-specific language.
