Accessing CSO servers via Web browsers

Is there any reason why I should not be able to reliably query CSO servers
e.g. <gopher://> via any WWW browser. NCSA Mosaic
for X (2pre6) handles it ok, www on Unix seems to freeze as does
NCSA Mosaic for Mac (B5). Havn't tried Lynx yet, but that's next.

The reason I ask is that I have placed a URL in one field of my record on
a CSO server which, because the text seems to be returned as <pre>, is
presented as a link when accessed using Mosaic for X.

It seemsed kinda neat so I'd like to recommend it to people if I was sure
it was reliable.
