Richard (and anyone else who may be interested),

I found a handy workaround for this problem on Ken Ray's site (thanks  
again, Ken).

set the hideConsoleWindows to true
     put empty into tTitle
     if "NT" is in the systemVersion then
         set the shellCommand to "cmd.exe"
         put quote & quote into tTitle
     end if
     replace "/" with "\" in pURL
     get shell("start" && tTitle && quote & pURL & quote)

I made a couple minor modifications to please my needs. Only tested  
by me under Win 2000/XP, but according to Ken, it should work for any  
version of Windows.
