Author: JT Smith

On November 20, 2001 mozilla.org made available for download binaries of
the Mozilla 0.9.6 Milestone. The builds and release notes are available
at http://www.mozilla.org/releases/. New to this milestone are fixes
for about 1,600 bugs including:
* Mozilla now displays page icons in the url bar (Expect support for 
shortcut icons (aka favicon) in Mozilla 0.9.7). Page icons can be 
defined in the html head section of a document like so:

    LINK REL="icon" HREF="images/mozilla-16.png" TYPE="image/png"
    LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="/images/global/branding/dellecomicon.ico"

* Mozilla can now display Windows .BMP and .ICO images on all platforms.
* Print Preview has been implemented.
* Macintosh Page Setup has been implemented.
* Mail message "labels" support has been implemented.
* Mail "prefill mail filter" support has been implemented.
* The new Search for item on the context menu lets you search for any 
text you highlight on a web page.
          * Select some text in browser window.
          * Right click in the browser window and a context menu will 
pop up.
          * Choose the Search for item and Mozilla will search for the 
highlighted text at your default engine.
