Yes, but not very extensively.  You have the same options available to you 
that you do when setting up NS (directory buttons, etc).

Not that I know of (but I only know ->.<- much Java, so...

I doubt you could do it even then.  You could, however (if you're into 
pain), deveolp your own plug-in to recognize filetypes of *.arena and have 
it do whatever you're wanting.

Direct hardware control like that is not allowed in JavaScript, but what 
you can do is this:
Have the browser pop up the new URL in a window all its own and send an 
alert window to the user saying "Please click your 'print' button now."

That's one of the main problems/complaints with Marquees, they just keep 
going and going and going...  Onw way would be to have a checkbox 
(somewhere) on the page that disables the scrolling text and returns them 
to some default position.  Or just have the Marquee only scroll a (small) 
finite number of times.  It could also be a problem with the algorithm you 
are using to scroll the marquee.

Well, that's more than two cents worth, but I hope someone gained
