Early on, the University of Iowa devised an extension to the Gopher0
protocol whereby type "i" denotes a piece of inline annotation. I've
heard tell that U Mn intends to embrace this extension. Has anyone
compiled a list of clients that already support type "i"? Hgopher
seems to. Is anything else up to speed?

Thanks...

Panda, XPanda, MacPanda, and WinPanda support it. But that's probably not
suprising. <grin>

After the last FAQ, I mailed the Gopher folks about the still-experimental
status of the "i" type, and they indicated that it would be moved into the
"official" section.

The OS/2 Gopher client supports type 'i'; so do the Rice and IBM CMS clients.

Since no one else has mentioned it yet, i'll throw in that the last few
versions of UMinn's Unix gopher+ client support the "i" type.

WSGopher has this. Also HTML, MIME, and a few other documented types. I
haven't seen a description yet for 'c' and 'e' so don't support those.
