Thanks.  I did and it seems to work fine.

I think it's a great idea!  It's interesting but I
was thinking much along the same lines.  (LNO and
Aos for Windows as a jumping point for Linux AOS.)
I'm not really much of a Linux user myself, but
Linux is certainly in the forefront of the Open
Source movement.  I think the dynamic web server
may have much of the capability of Zope or 
PHP templates.

Well the Aos GUI is pretty much built on PNG and XML.
But there currently isn't an Aos specific web browser
so right now you're stuck using the System 3 base
HTML 2 browser or WebNavigator.  Of course since
the source code is available for the PNG viewer
it shouldn't be impossible to get it working under
System 3.
