zMUD MXP Implementation
Always ensure you are using the latest version of zMUD, since MXP features

MXP notes for zMUD
version 6.15 and later.
- zMUD v6.15 does not yet implement the following MXP elements:
Tag number 19 (welcome text) not implemented
Defined MXP Elements can be viewed in the Preferences screen.
Individual elements can be enabled and disabled
Defined MXP Entities can be viewed in the Preferences screen.
Defined MXP Tags (20-99) can be viewed in the Preferences screen, and
their behavior can be modified. Attributes for the tagged line such as
color, redirected window name, etc can be changed.
Links (<A> and <SEND>) are underlined by default. User
can turn this off in the Preferences.

is implemented such that all aliases, triggers, etc are flagged as to whether
they were created by an MXP script command. This status is shown in the

an MXP setting. So, if the MXP <SCRIPT> command creates a trigger,
for example, that trigger is also restricted in the commands it can
execute. This security model should prevent a MUD server from causing any
damage to the client system. A detailed list of scripting commands allowed
in the <SCRIPT> element will be published in a future version of this
The user has the option to always display a message on the screen whenever
the server uses the <RELOCATE> tag.
zMUD disables the autolog trigger class when the <USER> or
<PASSWORD> tags are detected. Once the user has sent 5 commands to
the MUD, the <USER> and <PASSWORD> tags are no longer recognized
unless a <RELOCATE> tag has been received.
zMUD can no longer determine if the user is registered. Registration of
zMUD is now handled by the eLicense technology, and this is not accessible to
the client code. Thus, registration status will not be sent as part of the
- Frames, Cursor Control, Images, File Filters, H1..H4 HTML tags
