Great idea, but it didn't work on my Mac w/ Safari (10.4.7, latest everything). I get the following error message saying that Safari needs a plug-in.

"The page “Embedded Image Demo” has content of MIME type “image/jpg”. 
 Because you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can’t be displayed."

Subject: [Jmol-users] Saving image with applet - possible solution
Message-ID: <>


I think I found a solution to save images from the applet without the
need of a server.
The solution is supposed to work at least for most current non-'Internet
Explorer' browsers.

The idea is quite simple:

1) the javascript Jmol interface requests an image from Jmol
2) Jmol returns the image data to the interface
3) the image is inserted as value into the HTML code of the page for a
(predefined?) object
4) the browser displays the image in the page
5) the user saves the image using the "Save image..." dialog

I have set up a little demonstration page that illustrates this technique:
