Sorry, I don't have any software on my system for interpreting .jnlp
files, whatever those are. (And I *do* have software for the common and
even many of the more obscure formats for images, archives, and the
like, just to put that into some sort of perspective...)

You actually don't have a web browser?

I have a web browser, but it's the bog-standard variety that
understands .jpg, .gif, .png, .txt, .html, .shtml, .php, and
directories, and a few others (notably .svg).

    Most webbrowsers don't actually understand php or shtml. Typically, when
an URL ends with these extensions, they are actually serving HTML content.

I've never actually even
*seen* a .jnlp file before today. (And I still haven't -- only two
links to such files, up from a grand previous total of zero.)

Why, what kind did you think I had?

(I am assuming you have a JRE since you're apparantly doing Java

I suppose this is some subtle suggestion that JREs come with a tool
that recognizes the .jnlp format. If so, it's not a tool I've had
occasion to use (or even investigate), obviously. (I would expect that,
given a JRE plug-in, my browser does add .class and .jar to its
repertoire. Which suggests that .jnlp could be some type of active
content similar to an applet. If so, I'd definitely want to know
whether it runs in the same type of sandbox before touching either URL
with a ten-foot pole.)

    Well, we could tell you, but you might not take our word for it. Why not
try googling for "jnlp"?
