Hi. I just thought of an old idea I really loved, and thought that it
wouldn't be too hard to implement. Say you have property at 123n 123w,
or maybe even 8326.6 n 3586.9e. Just as worlds do, it would be nice to
have on the title bar something that you would call your house or
building. So, if I teleported to 123n 123w, the title bar would read
"Active Worlds - yourname's Building", or whatever you wanted it say,
_instead_ of the coordinates. And there would be an option to have it
show the regular coords and the names of the coords. It would display
sort of like Netscape's title bar on Web browsers. It says
"thehomepagetitle - Netscape." I hope you understand what I mean. ;-)

To expand on this it would be nice to be able to register a location (ASSUMING
YOU ARE THE LEGITIMATE BUILDER OF THE LOCATION) and whenever a person 'hits'
the co-ords something like: 'Welcome to Tyrell's Learning Centre' would
display in the 'bar instead of just the location co-ords... Sort of like a
greeting... Ya... Would require yet more work on Ronald's part but would be
very trendy... (I hear Roland's got far too much spare time on his hands these
days... shouldn't take long at all :-) )
