RE: LAS support for Mac OSX


The applet by itself works on our OSX system.  I'm wondering if
some simple changes to the JavaScript on our Version 5.0 LAS server
will fix it so that more folks can use our data.

Any suggestions here?  Am I opening a whole can of worms by considering
this?  (I'm not suggesting that PMEL make the changes, I would consider
doing them myself.)
