Re: checking for plug-ins

I think the plugin testing code is in the documentation now (at least I think I 
saw it, added in one of the more recent uploads).  The original poster is right 
in that if the plugin doesn't exist, you get an ugly "tell me what to do" 
dialog from Netscape.  In answer to that query, there doesn't seem to be a way 
to check for plugins and silently return true or false (it's only silent if 
it's true).  Because of this the code in the documentation (?) and the FAQ is 
pretty much useless, IMO.
