Hi Karl,

I've been using RasMol on the mac for some time without problems.
The MIME type configuration I'm using is as follows :

in Options Preferences Helper applications

Mime type/subtype chemical/x-pdb launch RasMac

This works for me in the amino-acids tutorial in PPS'96. I have
RasMac v2.5 and Netscape 1.12...

Hope this helps.
