Isoview and Windows XP 64 bit edition

found a slight bug with ISOview today that when used on a 64 bit XP machine to view a .cgm file the MIME or CLISD must be included using either an object or embed tag, loading the cgm file using a frame or iframe tag does not work.

If this is not included either a blank screen is shown or the user to prompted to select a viewer.

Using a frame in 32bit windows works fine. i guess it is something to do with how the cgm filetype is register when isoview is installed.

UPDATE: HMMM seems it does like : in URLs either,
