Active Worlds - URL Command - Display a webpage or download a file

The display can be made either by the integrated AW navigator at the right side, either be displayed by an external navigator, or either on the inside of the 3D window of the AW browser.
The first two possibilities are depending on the characteristics of your command and the configuration of your browser.
