    ======================
    1. Introduction [SEC1]
    ======================
    
    
    The Nintendo DS Web Browser (herein referred to as "the browser") is a handy 
    internet browser for the Nintendo DS.  The browser was developed by Opera
    Software (www.opera.com) and published by Nintendo.  The browser is based on
    the Opera Mobile Browser version 8.5.
    
    The official Opera forums for the browser can be found at the following
    address: http://my.opera.com/community/forums/forum.dml?id=1406
    
    The Japanese version of the browser was released on July 24, 2006, the European
    version was released in on October 6, 2006 and the North American version was
    released on June 4, 2007.
    
    The browser is available at many retailers worldwide.  Versions from other
    regions are available for import to the United States and Canada. Retailers
    selling the browser are listed in Section 2.
    
    Included with the browser is a Nintendo DS card (inserts into the top slot
    on the Nintendo DS - this contains the actual program for the browser), an
    8 MB RAM cartridge (which inserts into the GBA slot on the Nintendo DS - the
    RAM cartridge MUST be inserted in the GBA slot on the DS, otherwise the browser
    will not function) and an instruction booklet (please note that the booklet is
    written in the language that corresponds to the region of it's release, i.e. the
    Japanese browser manual is completely Japanese and the US browser manual is
    completely English).
    
    There are two versions of the browser.  One is designed to be used on the
    original Nintendo DS (it is also compatible with the DS Lite).  The other is
    designed for use ONLY with the Nintendo DS Lite.  The ONLY difference is the
    physical size of the RAM cartridge - the actual program is exactly the same.
    
    The version for the original DS features a RAM cartridge that is the same size
    as a standard GBA cartridge.  The DS Lite version features a RAM cartridge that
    is about 1 CM smaller than a standard GBA cartridge.  This allows the cartridge
    to be flush with the DS Lite when inserted (a normal GBA cartridge will
    protrude about 1 CM from the DS Lite when inserted).  The browser designed for
    the original DS will work on the DS Lite (although the RAM cartridge will
    protrude from the console about 1 CM just like a GBA game).  The DS Lite
    version of the browser WILL NOT WORK on the original Nintendo DS.  The reason
    for this is the shortened RAM cartridge is too small to reach the contacts in
    the GBA slot of the original DS.  Again, the RAM cartridge MUST be inserted in
    the DS otherwise the browser will not function.
    
    
    
    
    ==============================================
    2. Where to Buy the Nintendo DS Browser [SEC2]
    ==============================================
    
    In North America the Nintendo DS Lite Browser can be purchased at many
    retailers such as GameStop, Best Buy & Circuit City.  The Browser for the
    original Nintendo DS can only be purchased directly from Nintendo at
    www.nintendo.com or by calling toll free 1-800-255-3700.  The Browser sells
    for a price of $29.99 - $34.99 which can vary from retailer to retailer.
    
    The browser is also available for import from online retailers in Japan, 
    Europe and Australia.  For those who wish to import the browser (not really
    necessary anymore since it has now been released worldwide), there are
    currently four online retailers (listed below in no particular order) which
    sell the browser for import to the United States and Canada.  
    
    [I've personally imported software from Play Asia and NCSX and found both
    retailers to be reputable businesses with good customer service. 
    
    I've never shopped online with Toys n Joys so I don't have any personal
    experiences to share however, I have been to their store in Hawaii and
    recommend that if you're in the area you should check them out.
    
    I've never shopped online with Gameplay so I don't have any personal
    experiences to share.]
    
    
    www.play-asia.com
    
    Play Asia is an overseas online retailer that specializes in importing video
    games and hardware to the United States and Canada.  They are located in
    Hong Kong.  As of the time of this writing the European browser is retailing
    for $49.90 and their cheapest shipping option is $2.60.
    
    
    www.ncsx.com
    
    NCSX is a US based online retailer that specializes in importing video
    games and hardware to the United States and Canada.  They are located in
    New York City.  As of the time of this writing the Japanese browser for the DS
    Lite is $49.00.  They do not stock the browser for the original DS model.
    Their cheapest shipping option is about $7.00 for UPS 3-day. [NCSX will ship
    your product the same day if you order by 5pm EST.  They use UPS as their
    default shipping method so your order will arrive quickly.]
    
    
    www.toysnjoys.com
    
    Toys N' Joys is a US based online retailer that specializes in importing video
    games and hardware to the United States and Canada.  They are located in
    Honolulu, Hawaii.  As of the time of this writing the Japanese browser for the
    original DS is retailing for $39.95 and the Japanese version for the DS Lite is
    $49.95.  Their cheapest shipping option is $8.00.
    
    
    www.gameplay.co.uk
    
    Gameplay is an overseas online retailer that offers worldwide shipping for all
    of their products (with the exception of consoles).  They are located in the
    UK.  As of the time of this writing the European release  of the browser is
    retailing for 25 GBP (approx. $47.00 USD) and their cheapest shipping option
    is 99p to the UK and 5 GBP worldwide (approx. $9.38 USD).
    
    
    
    
    ==========================
    3. Browser Function [SEC3]
    ==========================
    
    DS Region Compatibility [SEC3A]
    
    The Nintendo DS is a region-free console.  All versions of the browser will
    work on any Nintendo DS regardless of the region they were purchased in. Thus,
    the Japanese version of the browser will work on North American and European
    Nintendo DS's and vice versa.
    
    
    Limitations [SEC3B]
    
    While most of the internet is viewable, there are certain functions that are 
    NOT available on the browser.  These are: Flash, Java (although Javascript
    does work), PDF documents, video & sound.  In addition the browser can not
    copy or paste highlighted text or images to a clipboard.  There is no print
    function.  It is not possible to open multiple browser windows simultaneously.
    
    The browser can display the following image formats: JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF &
    animated GIF.
    
    
    Extending the DS Battery Life [SEC3C]
    
    The battery life of the Nintendo DS is significantly shorter when using the
    browser AND connected to a wireless network (the same holds true when playing
    a WiFi enabled DS game online as well).  A fully charged DS Lite battery will
    last approximately 5 hours (3rd brightness setting) when running the browser
    connected to a wireless network.
    
    One way to save battery power is to disconnect the DS from the wireless
    network when you don't plan on navigating to a new web page for some time (such
    as when you've loaded a lengthy article or FAQ you plan to read).
    
    This can be done in two ways.  The easiest way is to simply close the DS (as
    if you were putting it into sleep mode) and then re-open it.  Doing so
    disconnects the DS from the network.  The second option is to go to the
    settings menu and tap the "Network Disconnect" button.
    
    To reconnect the DS to the wireless network, simply tap any link on the
    browser or in your favorites window.  The browser will automatically re-connect
    to the network so you can continue browsing the internet.
    
    
    Wireless Communication [SEC3D]
    
    The browser requires the Nintendo DS to be within range of a wireless hotspot
    in order to view web pages.  In general, if you can connect to a network in
    order to play wireless enabled Nintendo DS games you should be able to use
    the same network to view the internet with the browser.
    
    Nintendo's website lists wireless routers that are compatible with the
    Nintendo DS: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/routerInfo.jsp
    
    The setup for the wireless connection is identical to every other WiFi enabled
    Nintendo DS game (note that the interface in the Japanese version is entirely
    Japanese with no English language option available).
    
    Follow the steps below for a walkthrough of the wireless setup for the browser.
    
    1. Open the Settings Menu after powering-up the browser (wrench icon).
    
    2. Tap the "Connect" button with your stylus on the "Network" menu (see Section
    4).  This will take you to the "Nintendo WiFi Connection Setup" menu.
    
    3. Tap the big blue button on the left with your stylus for "Nintendo WiFi
    Connection Settings."
    
    4. Now you will see three entry spots for wireless information (labeled 1, 2
    & 3).  If you're using a router you'll use these buttons.  Below these three
    spots is a large blue button to connect to your Nintendo WiFi USB Connector.
    If you're using the USB Connector, you'll use this button.
    
    5. The top 3 buttons are divided into upper and lower sections.  The lower
    sections will erase the data on the respective buttons.  The top section is
    used to detect a new wireless signal.  Tap the top section of an empty
    button with your stylus.
    
    6. Tap the big blue button on the next screen to automatically detect a
    wireless connection.  After a few seconds a screen will appear with the SSID's
    of the compatible wireless signals the Nintendo DS had detected.  Select the
    appropriate one by tapping on it with your stylus.  If a WEP Key is required
    (A WEP Key is required if a "locked" icon is displayed next to the SSID) you
    will be prompted to enter it after selecting the SSID.
    
    7. Once you select the SSID of the desired WiFi connection and the WEP Key
    has been entered (if required) the DS will ask to perform a test of the
    connection.
    
    8. If it tests ok you're all done.  Simply back out of the Wireless Setup
    menu by tapping on the lower left hand corner of the screen (or just press
    the "B" button").  Once you return to the Start Page of the browser simply
    tapping on a link will connect the DS to the previously selected WiFi
    network.  If the test fails, note the error code and visit
    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/lookup.jsp or call Nintendo of
    America toll-free at 1-800-255-3700 to determine the cause.
    
    
    Browser Compatibility with Captive Portals [SEC3E]
    
    Networks that require the user to sign in with a username and a password
    upon launching the web browser (captive portal networks - a captive portal
    sign-in is not the same as WEP encryption), commonly found in hotels,
    airports, universities and other public locations are not normally available
    for gaming with the Nintendo DS. However, these networks ARE available for
    viewing the internet via the browser (providing you know the username and
    password, that is).  The browser will simply re-direct the user to the web
    sign-in page.  Once the username and password are entered the browser will
    function normally.  Once you have signed in, these networks can be used to
    play online enabled DS games as well (see the next section).
    
    
    Using the Browser to Enable DS WiFi Games [SEC3F]
    
    Since you can now use the browser to access captive portal networks (as
    described above) you can now play WiFi enabled DS games on these networks as
    well.
    
    Normally, if you try and access a captive portal network with a DS WiFi game
    you will get an error such as "The Nintendo DS is unable to connect to this
    Access Point with this user ID."  The reason for this is the DS has no
    interface which allows you to enter the username and password required for
    network access.  Therefore, the DS is normally unable to access the Nintendo
    WFC using captive portal networks.
    
    With the browser you CAN access these networks (providing you know the username
    and password, that is).  Simply power up the browser and log onto the web
    network with the username and password (as described in the previous section).
    Once you're logged on, you can shut down the browser and play any WiFi enabled
    DS game since you have already successfully logged onto the network.
    
    
    Interface Language (Japanese version only) [SEC3G]
    
    Unfortunately, since the Japanese version of the browser is targeted primarily
    to a Japanese speaking market, neither interface nor the instructions contain
    any English - there is no English language option for the browser interface.
    While the internet can be viewed without knowing Japanese (websites will be
    displayed in whatever language they were designed in - i.e. 
    www.nintendo.co.jp will be displayed in Japanese and www.nintendo.com 
    and www.gamefaqs.com will be displayed in English) the setup of the browser is
    essentially a trial and error process if you aren't fluent in Japanese.
    Section 4 will provide a complete translation of the Settings Menu from
    Japanese to English.  This should help those people unfamiliar with the
    Japanese language modify the default settings of their browser with confidence.
    
    The browser does contain an English keyboard and handwriting recognition in
    addition to a Japanese keyboard and handwriting recognition and Chinese
    handwriting recognition.  The English keyboard & handwriting input will be used
    when entering website addresses in the URL window and for all other text input
    on English based websites.
    
    
    Website Display Language [SEC3H]
    
    Websites will display in whatever language they are designed in.  If you type
    in "www.yahoo.com" you will view the English language version of Yahoo!.  If
    you type in "www.yahoo.co.jp" you will view the Japanese language version of
    Yahoo!.  GameFAQs displays in English since that's the language it was
    designed in.
    
    The only exception to this rule (so far) is Google when using the Japanese
    version of the browser.  Google will redirect to the Japanese language site
    even if the US address is entered.  For the workaround see next sub-section
    titled "Google Search" [SEC3N].
    
    
    Browser Speed [SEC3I]
    
    The browser runs quite well for a mobile web browser.  It runs a bit faster
    than a dial-up connection, but not nearly as fast as a broadband connection.
    It should go without saying that the more graphics displayed on the web page
    the longer it will take to load.  Websites that are specifically designed for
    mobile devices load very quickly.  Conversely, web pages that are graphically
    intensive can take upwards of several minutes to load.
    
    Examples:
    
    Websites with minimal graphics such as Google and GameFAQ's typically load in
    less than 10 seconds.
    
    Websites that have large amounts of graphics such as IGN and Nintendo.com
    typically take several minutes to load completely.  Selecting images to off
    (on the browser toolbar) can decrease load times on these sites significantly.
    
    In order to get the maximum speed from the browser, select the SSR mode and
    disable the images.  Use the buttons on the bottom of the screen to change
    display modes and toggle the images on or off.  You can also set the browser
    to default to your desired mode and picture setting on the Settings Menu (see
    Section 4 of this FAQ).
    
    
    Pop-Up Advertisements [SEC3J]
    
    Since the browser is only capable of displaying one window at a time, the
    browser will not display any pop-up advertisements.
    
    
    Downloadable Content / Browser Plug-Ins [SEC3K]
    
    The browser is not capable of downloading any content from the internet
    since there is be no place to store it.  Likewise, the browser cannot
    download and install any plug-ins (such as Flash or Java) or online
    chat clients.
    
    The RAM cartridge is not designed to store downloadable content from the
    internet.  The RAM cartridge is provided SOLELY for the purpose of
    expanding the memory of the DS so it is sufficient to run the browser.
    Without the RAM cartridge the DS does not have sufficient memory to run
    the browser and therefore it will not function unless the RAM cartridge
    is inserted.
    
    There is no add-on type product that will allow the browser to store
    downloadable content planned or announced.
    
    
    Parental Controls Japanese Version (i Filter) [SEC3L]
    
    There is an OPTION to turn on parental controls for the browser.  Parental
    controls default to off.  These controls can be enabled in the Settings
    Menu, however in order to activate this function you are required to pay a
    monthly subscription fee for the service.  With parental contrrols turned
    off you can view adult websites just as you can with any other web browser.
    
    Visit the following website for further information about i Filter:
    http://www.daj.jp/cs/ifds/index.htm (Japanese language website).
    
    
    Parental Controls US Version (Astaro) [SEC3M]
    
    There is an OPTION to turn on parental controls for the browser.  Parental
    controls default to off.  These controls can be enabled in the Settings
    Menu UNDER "Proxy Settings."  Check the "Use Proxy" check-box.  You may
    password protect the parental controls by selecting the "Proxy Lock" menu
    and entering a username and password.  With this parental controls turned
    off you can view adult websites just as you can with any other web browser.
    
    Visit the following website for further information about Astaro Content
    Filtering Service:
    
    http://www.ds-content-filter.astaro.com
    
    
    Online Chat [SEC3N]
    
    Online Chat is reportedly available on the browser.  The following site has
    been said to allow the use of certain chat rooms (such as MSN and AIM):
    
    http://mob.e-messenger.net/mobile/
    
    
    Web Based E-Mail [SEC3O]
    
    Web based e-mail runs flawlessly on the browser.  Examples of such are
    Yahoo! mail, GMail and MSN.  The browser will allow you to log and check
    your e-mail just as you do from your PC.
    
    
    Video [SEC3P]
    
    Video does not work on the browser regardless of the format.  You can not
    view Flash video files nor can you download movies in other formats (such as
    mpeg or WMV).
    
    You can not view videos on websites such as You Tube, Google Video, IGN,
    Gamespot, etc.
    
    
    Sound [SEC3Q]
    
    The browser does not support any sound files from the internet.  The browser
    does include some basic sounds with the interface which can be selected on
    or off (i.e. the "popping" noise the browser makes when you click on a link)
    however you cannot listen to mp3 files or any other sound files.
    
    
    Firmware Updates [SEC3R]
    
    As of the time of this writing there are no planned firmware updates for the
    browser (it is likely that the browser is incapable of accepting such an
    update).
    
    
    Susceptibility to Computer Viruses & Spyware [SEC3S]
    
    Since the internet is rife with computer viruses it is a fair question to ask
    if the DS is vulnerable to computer viruses.  Fortunately, the answer is no.
    There is no ability for the browser to download and permanently store
    information on the DS - and that includes computer viruses and spyware -
    therefore there is no risk of infecting your DS with these types of malicious
    programs.
    
    
    Google Search in English (Japenese Version) [SEC3T]
    
    In the Japanese version, Google tends to default to the Japanese site (even if
    the US address is entered).  By entering the following address in the URL
    window you will link directly to the English Google site:
    
    http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en&lr
    
    Save this address to your bookmarks page so the English Google website will
    be readily available.
    
    
    Browser Navigation [SEC3U]
    
    The following are the functions available by tapping the buttons along the
    bottom of the web browser from left to right.
    
    
    [ Back ]

    Part A
    
    Bookmarks are saved to the memory of the browser so they will be available
    whenever you use your browser.
    
    To save a bookmark follow the steps listed below.
    
    1. Load the page you wish to bookmark by entering its address in the URL
    window.
    
    2. Once the page loads, click on the bookmark (star) icon on the bottom of the
    page.
    
    3a. When the bookmarks page opens, you will see the address of the current page
    (the one you just loaded) listed on the bottom of the screen.  Click the
    button to the right of the address to add that page to the list of bookmarks.
    
    3b. Instead of clicking the button in the lower right-hand corner as described
    in step 3a, simply click and drag the page address (displayed near the bottom
    of the screen) to the desired folder on the bookmarks menu.
    
    
    Part B
    
    To edit the bookmarks, click the pen button in the lower left-hand corner of
    the screen.
    
    1. To add a new folder, click the folder button on the bottom of the bookmarks
    screen.  This will bring you to the edit bookmarks page.
    
    2. To rename a bookmark or a folder, highlight the bookmark and then click the
    pen icon on the bottom of the screen.  Edit the name with the on-screen
    keyboard.
    
    3. To move bookmarks, simply click and drag the bookmarks.
    
    4. To delete bookmarks, simply highlight a bookmark and then click the trash
    can button on the bottom of the page.
    
    5. Once your changes are complete, click the "O" button on the lower 
    right-hand side of the screen.  If you want to cancel all changes, click the
    "X" button on the lower right-hand side of the screen.
    
    
    Part C
    
    The Start Menu folder contains the links which will appear when you
    initially power up your browser.
    
    
    The links that come pre-loaded on the browser are:
    
    
    For the US version:
    
    Nintendo of America
    
    Opera Software
    
    Astaro Content Filter Services Website
    
    
    For the Japanese version:
    
    Nintendo of Japan
    
    Opera Software
    
    i Filter Parental Controls
    
    
    The Start Menu can be edited on the bookmarks page.
    
    1. Go to the edit bookmarks page as described in Part B above.
    
    2. Edit the bookmarks in the "Start Menu" folder just as you would edit
    all other bookmarks as described in Part B.  All bookmarks listed in
    the Start Menu will be displayed when you initially power up your
    browser.
    
    Note that the browser will not let you delete the Start Menu folder.

    The search function for the browser defaults to the Yahoo! search engine.
    You can select a custom search engine however, the browser requires a 
    special format for the address in order to work properly.
    
    The following are the addresses for several popular search engines
    formatted so they will work properly when entered into the "Other Search
    Engine" text bar on the Settings Menu.
    
    
    Google
    
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%s
    
    
    Yahoo!
    
    http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=%s
    
    
    MSN
    
    http://search.msn.com/results.aspx?q=%s
    
    
    Is your search engine not listed?  Here's how to format your favorite
    search engine so it meets Opera's format for the custom address on the
    Settings Menu (thanks goes to "Dejitaru Ken" of GameFAQ's for figuring 
    out the procedure).
    
    1. Go to the search engine of your choice by entering the URL in the
    address window (we'll use Google for this example).
    
    2. Do a web search using any text (for example, in this example we'll
    use "cookies").
    
    3. Note the web address after you perform the search.  The example
    address: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cookies&btnG=Google+Search
    
    4. Replace your searched text ("cookies" in the above address) with a
    "%s" (you can usually delete everything after the %s as well) and note
    the new address.  In the example the new address will be: 
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%s
    
    5. Enter this new address in the "Other Search Engine" text bar in the 
    Settings Menu.
    
    
    When using the search function, the left check-box will search the active
    web page for the entered text and the right check-box will search the web
    for the entered text (the check-boxes are displayed just below the text
    window, above the keyboard).
    
    ***************************************************************************
    * This formatting is ONLY required when entering a custom search engine   *
    * on the Settings Menu.  When entering a URL in the address window simply *
    * enter the address as you normally would.  I.e. for Yahoo! simply enter  *
    * www.Yahoo.com in the address window to go directly to the Yahoo!        *
    * website.                                                                *

    SSR Mode (Small Screen Rendering Mode) - The browser will reformat web pages
    in order to fit the width of the Nintendo DS screens (approx. 247 pixels wide).
    All the information will be displayed, however it will not be in the format
    you are used to seeing on your desktop browser.
    
    DS Mode - On the bottom screen, the web page will be displayed in it's
    original form.  The DS will zoom out to fit the page width to the DS's
    screens.  There will be a scroll box on the bottom screen that you drag
    with your stylus.  The top screen will display the contents of the scroll
    box.  Use the "swap screens" button in order to swap the displays.  This
    will allow you to enter text and click on links via the touch-screen.

    4. Settings Menu Translationfor Japanese Version [SEC4]
    =======================================================
    
    
    The following is a Japanese - English translation of the Settings Menu found
    on the browser (the wrench button at the bottom of the browser window).
    
    The main menu is listed to the left and submenus (menus which are opened by
    clicking on buttons on the main menu) are indented underneath the main menu
    from which they can be accessed.
    
    
    Those boxes that are checked and the entries that are listed below are the
    default selections of the browser.  Tapping the "Reset All Default Settings"
    button at the bottom of the Settings Menu will return the settings to what
    is displayed here. (Note: This button will NOT delete your bookmarks)
