LizardTech orphaned a bunch of operating systems with their release of
Version 4.0, including MacOS. A search of their web-site turns up
documentation of how to use the Mac versions and the Java viewer, but it's
nowhere to be found.

However, a link on the main page to their Japanese web-site reveals that the
MrSID viewer for Mac OS 8/9 is still downloadable, and can be found here:


If you're running OS X, you'll need to have Netscape and/or Explorer
installed in your Classic Applications folder.

Hope this helps some of you.

Also, there is no reason why Beinecke can't set up a MrSID viewer server on
their web-site to display these images on any system, as demonstrated by the
following web-site at the University of Virginia:
