No, it wasn't obvious from what I've done so far.

A separate image would be fine with me.

Again, not obvious.

I use mozilla with moderatly paranoid settings, so many web pages
don't work.  I tried allowing cookies and allowing java, but that
didn't seem to be enough.  Debian unstable.  I think openoffice.org
uses java, so there may be some java installed.

I get a broken image that when clicked gives the error:

This page continas information of a type (appication/x-java-vm) that can
only be view with the appropriate Plug-in.

So it's probably a matter of installing software and possibly
disabling security.

Although I've seen claims that the TIGER data is available, I havn't yet
seen it in a usable form.  (gpsdrive or magellan meridian color format
are ones I can currently use)

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
