I don't recall having seen anything like this, so here goes...

text/x-html; xmosaic %s
text/x-html; xmosaic %s; compose=htmlcompose %s;\
description="HTML Hypertext generated by tkWWW 0.8"

Where htmlcompose is...


WWW_HOME=$1.html export WWW_HOME

cat >$WWW_HOME <<!!EOF!!
<title>HTML generated for `whoami`@`hostname`.`domainname` by TkWWW</title>
<h1>Type your message in here!</h1>

tkWWW -wwwnoinfo
mv $1.html $1

The only drawback with using tkWWW this way is that you have
to go through the "generate source" & "save source" dialogs
to get your HTML exported.


One way to get around this would be to have a command line option
(say -wwwsource) that told it just to act as an HTML editor, reading
in $1 and dumping the exported HTML automatically on exiting.


PS An "insert file" option would be quite nice too!
