2/5     NEW YORK (AP) -- Facing intense competition from Microsoft, Netscape
        Communications Corp. is considering selling some or all of the
        company, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

        Netscape was in discussions with America Online Inc., Sun Microsystems
        Inc., Oracle Corp. and IBM Corp. about strategic investments or an
        outright purchase, the newspaper said, citing unnamed sources familiar
        with the situation of the Internet software company.
        \_ it's about time the stock price moved.  what a lame ass investment.
        \_ 2-for-1 Sale!  Buy Netscape and we'll throw in Apple for free!
