Hi!
How can I change browser caption? It represents the url by default and in some cases the string like '/scripts/prog.exe?par1+par2+par3' seems to be not a good caption...
Thanks in advance.

just want to add my $.02

format the title as follows in the <HEAD> area
<TITLE>This is the my window caption</TITLE>

you may be interesed in setting the window status line as well.

if you add the following to your HTML document you can set a default status bar message, with a little more code, you can guide the visitor with helpful, or other messages. hope it helps, FYI

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
<!--
window.defaultStatus="This is my default status message"
//-->
</SCRIPT>
