don't know if this is really possible anymore. in mozilla 2.0b2 it was
available and someone wrote a script that took the entire history and
printed it on an html page to demonstrate that unscrupulous developers
could "steal" this information. netscape realized the possibilities and
removed the "feature". sorry that i no longer have the original url that
demonstrated this but maybe someone else on this list might.
