[thelist] N6 doesn't let me view js files

Hi 'volters,

I've just put "view-source:http://www.blah.com/myfile.js"

but N6 then gives me a popup advising:

"This file has mime type application/x-javascript and cannot be viewed using
Netscape 6.  You can open it with another application, or save it to disk."

I visited Preferences to set N6 to open this mime-type, but my "Helper
Applications" section doesn't show ANY applications set up to handle
anything, and when trying to add one for this mime-type, I get a message:

"A helper already exists for mime-type application/x-javascript, do you wish
to overwrite?"

So - does N6 not allow you to view js files?  And if it does, how do I set
it up?  And why can't I see the helper applications set up already?

Many thanks,
Karen Bowen
