Anyway,since HTML is related to SGML, here goes: does someone know
of a read-only browser for HTML documents ? What I need is
something in PD or shareware that takes a HTML doc ( extension
.html ) and presents it in a window; if a link is activated, the
viewer forks to present this new document or presents it in the
same window.

You just pretty much described NCSA Mosaic (ftp to ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu
in /Mosaic).

This browser would be similar to the XMosaic product
from NCSA but without all the bells and whistles.

Ah. Well, you could place masking tape over where the menubar shows
up on the screen…
