Subject: RE: Java on Macintosh/IE Control


ISL is something Apple seems to really want to jumpstart their protocol work and act as an integrated point for their new key chain stuff. It could really help Netscape, so I've only been willing to talk about in the context of IE as the exclusive browser. [They could ship Netscape on secondary media]

Subject: RE: Java on Macintosh/IE Control

RE IE -

Sounds like we will give them the HTML control for nothing except making IE the "standard browser for Apple". I think they should be doing this anyway. Though the language of the agreement uses the word "encourage" I think the spirit is that Apple should be using it everywhere, and if they don't do it, then we can use Office as a club. So I guess I'm saying that I don't think we should give them the HTML control unless they make IE the exclusive browser (and not need to bargain with ISL).
