There is no other way than the way it has always been. You got the
recipe from someone else I see.

v5 prints out all player:notify strings, i.e., everything addressed to
the player from the DATABASE will be printed out in the HTML chat.
Now, there are some cases where the SERVER notifies the player
(connection) about things that went wrong. Those notifications are not
channeled through the database, thus are not part of the moo world, in a
way. You may read those server strings in the JAVA console, as all
strings are sent through there, both database strings and server
strings. Only the database strings make it to the HTML chat, as it is a
pure database thing, and not a server chat any more.

There is no quick way to get back the frames, i.e., no switch to push or

all web apps frame free - for a number of reasons.
As you may have noticed, there is a link "new instance" at the very top.
Clicking that link will give you an additional window. Have you tried to
call a window and resize it so it displays all verbs, then right click
on the verb or prop link in the lists and choose "open in another
window"? That would leave the window and the positioning of the list
where it was, while you may look at the long code chunks in the other
