Sorry, that's what I meant. The portal server selects a stylesheet (provided with the
gadget) to customize the output for IE, netscape or WAP.

Don't know anything about iPlanet, but I think this would be pretty straightforward with
NPS does a lot more however, it allows the administrator to customize what the user
can see/select. There's a hierarchy of settings/authority/views etc that is tightly
integrated with NDS (eDirectory). You could model this on LDAP.

It's a daily fortune, like the Unix fortune program. I wrote it as a sample Jython servlet to
see if I can get it published in Novell's AppNotes "Creating NPS gadgets using Jython"
