;;; Commentary:
;;
;;   This module defines an implicit button type and associated action and
;;   help types.  A press of the Action Key on a unified resource locator
;;   (URL) displays the referent for the URL.  A press of the Help Key on a
;;   URL displays a history list of previously browsed WWW documents.  Press
;;   the Action Key on any item from the history list to display it.
;;
;;   This requires the Emacs W3 World-Wide-Web browser available from:
;;     ftp://cs.indiana.edu/pub/elisp/w3/.
;;
;;   It assumes that you have set up to have w3 auto-loaded according to the
;;   setup instructions included with W3.  Specifically, `w3-fetch' should be
;;   autoloaded.
;;

;;; Code:

;;;
;;; Other required Elisp libraries
;;;

;;; Requires that 'w3' or other web browser code that is called be available.
