Broadway, under development at the X Consortium in 1996, is a package of
technologies designed to provide what is termed "universal access to
interactive applications on the Web" -- the ability to locate and invoke
remote applications via the Web and have their displays, including both
graphics and audio, appear wherever you are (on your local desktop), either
as new top-level windows or embedded within your Web browser.

Building Broadway will involve creating a least three new extensions to 
X11 (one for embedding, one for fast performance over low-speed lines, 
and one for security enhancements), but will also involve developing new
standards for remote activation, and will involve modifying Web browsers
to support the Broadway activation and embedding protocols.

The Broadway embedding protocols are designed to allow a Broadway-capable
window manager and X server to cooperate and provide embedded display of
unmodified X11 applications; Broadway does not imply an incompatible
protocol.

See http://www.x.org/consortium/broadway.html for more information.

Note that "Broadway" is an internal name, only. It will be released as
X11R7 or X11R6.2.
