I installed lois and chromevox from the chrome store. Running version Chromium 18.0.1025.168 from ubuntu 12.04, but no luck getting it working yet. Not sue how to verify nacl support - looks like it was added in v14 and it is listed/mentioned in the copyright file of this version, but no luck yet. On another note, seem to have run itno a bug with emacs 24 url, so now I cannot follow links in w3. Seems to be losing the 'host' value somewhere, so throws a stingp nil error. Was working with a version of emacs from earlier in the week, so probably just a temporary hitch. Was working through your mm-customize.el file and noticed something which I found a bit confusing. In it, you have some tests under the mm--inline-media-tests setting of the form (lambda (&rest ignore) (or mm-text-html-renderer mm-text-html-renderer)) I don't understand the or statement. It has the same varible for both paths - seems like a weird thing to do, unless there is something I'm missing? I would have thought just returning the var would achieve the same result? Just curious really as I always like to try and understand bits of elisp I come across. Tim On 12 May 2012 13:05, T. V.
