Ok.  I was able to answer my own questions:

1) Loopback mode:  Already available.  I needed to
do instead of http://localhost

2) Using dynamic webpages (*.dxp pages).  WinAos
Oberon is missing the DynamicWebpagePlugin.Text
file that explains how to do this.  I'll upload
this info to the Wiki.

So some good progress!  I still don't know how
to run *.ssmp pages.  (Though I like *.dxp better
at this point.)
