|Title:||URLOPEN arexx cmd does not work|
|I should have written "OPENURL" rather than "URLOPEN", but the ARexx program was correct.
I also forgot to note that this bug prevents OpenURL from working, such that clicking on a URL in (say) SimpleMail does not work if MUI-OWB is already running.

|I was reading the documentation for the wrong OWB (oops). MUI-OWB's says the following:
- OpenURL configuration
Rexx Port: OWB
Screen To Front: SCREENTOFRONT
Open: OPEN NAME="%u"
Open in new window: OPEN NAME="%u" NEWPAGE
HOWEVER, that does not work. The following ARexx program does nothing:
I'm not sure if single-quoted URLs are supported, but if they are then this doesn't work either:
Rx "Address OWB.1; OPEN NAME='http://google.co.uk'"

Sometimes its an OpenURL configuration error. Dont use "OPENURL" command, as its NOT an OWB/Odyssey ARexx command. The right command is "OPEN" (see the readme for details). Quotes (single and double ones) work as expected. Examples:
To open in current window:
ram:> rx "address owb.1; OPEN NAME 'http://google.com'"
To open in new tab:
ram:> rx "address owb.1; OPEN NAME 'http://google.com' NEWPAGE"
Working script example:
OPEN NAME "http://google.co.uk"
