> I have:
> 1) reorganised my web server, so the link in the old hint wouldn't work.
> 2) changed to a Creative Commons license.
> 3) and changed the email address I'm using.
> I also wanted to to make the text hint autogeneratable from the on-line
> version. But lynx - dump just won't do the job - the on-line version is
> massively interlinked, and lynx just lists all the URLs at the end - the
> result is ugly and unworkable. I'm open to suggestions on how to fix this.
> What I propose now is the attached hint. It reproduces all the redtape
> and introductory explanation, so that readers know what is on the
> website, but instead of duplicating the material, it just links to it.
> I'll maintain this text hint so that the links keep working.
> My belief is that the text hint would never work anyway. To use the
> document - an index to on-line documents - absolutely requires the user
> be on-tine! On the other hand we have no mechanism, short of a
> reference in the book itself for and on-line hint, so we DO need a text
> place marker.
> Hence a revised hint.
and now the attachment...
