Just to avoid any confusion above, I have 2 installations of RPCEmu, 
/both/ 0.8.9 and 0.8.8: the former runs RO 4.02 and is 
internet-enabled, the latter runs 5.17 and is not. NetSurf is 
installed on both (on 5.17 simply to view HTML files). The NetSurf 
version in use is r13405, but reverting to 2.8 makes no difference.
