Get displayed url from browser using DDE

This code retrieves the url and window title of any open instance of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer. It uses DDE (Dynamic data exchange) and WWW_GetWindowInfo and is much more reliable than the FindWindow Function. DDE is supported in Internet Explorer > 3.0 and in Netscape Navigator > 2.0.

Original Author: Mark E.

Side Effects

A very minor bug, in which the window title becomes the url with some server parsed pages.
