Mark Davies has recently sent this message to the ringing-chat mailing
list - I've copied it here as it may be of interest to some.  Elf is a
powerful online spliced composition generator.

I'm sitting at home in the early stages of chicken-pox, feeling pretty
rotten but needing something to do to keep my mind off it. So I thought
I'd have a look at Elf again, and see if I could make it run in Mozilla,
after all these years.

Anyway, it turned out to be stupidly easy, so there is now a new version
Elf - Elf Undomiel - which should run in IE6/7 and Firefox. You'll need
to have the Sun Java Plugin installed, but there's a link off the main
page if you haven't.


I've tried it in IE6, 7 and Firefox on Windows XP, with the Java 6
It should work with earlier versions of Java (was coded to be compatible
with Java 1.1!). I'd be interested to see how other people get on,
especially on other platforms - let me know at this address:

Note that the earlier builds (e.g. Tinuviel) are still available for
anyone running IE with the old Microsoft JVM; you can get to them via
Elf Help and
Version History, or by direct link: <http://bronze-age.org/elf/tinuviel>
