+* Files in this directory
+  + emacs-22.1-bin-i386.zip
+    Windows binaries of Emacs-22.1, with all lisp code and documentation
+    included.
+    Download this file if you want a single installation package, and
+    are not interested in the C source code for Emacs. After
+    unpacking, you can optionally run the file bin/addpm.exe to have
+    Emacs add icons to the Start Menu.
+    If you need the C source code at a later date, it will be safe to
+    unpack the source distribution on top of this installation.
+  + emacs-22.1-barebin-i386.zip
+    Windows binaries of Emacs-22.1, without lisp code or documentation.
+    Download this file if you already have the source distribution, or
+    if you need to redump the emacs.exe executable.
+    Unpack this over the top of either the source distribution or the
+    bin distribution above. It contains the bin subdirectory and etc/DOC
+    file, plus temacs.exe and dump.bat, which are required if you want to
+    redump emacs without recompiling it.
+  + emacs-21.3-bin-i386.tar.gz
+    Windows binaries of Emacs 21.3, with compiled lisp code and some
+    documentation included.
+    This is provided for users who require the older version.
+  + emacs-21.3-leim.tar.gz
+    Compiled lisp input methods. This optional addition to Emacs-21.3
+    is required if you want to enter languages that are not directly
+    supported by your keyboard.
+* Image support
+  Emacs 22.1 contains support for images, however for most image formats
+  supporting libraries are required.  This distribution has been tested
+  with the libraries that are distributed with GTK for Windows, and the
+  libraries found at http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/. The following image
+  formats are supported:
+      PBM/PGM/PPM: Supported natively by Emacs. This format is used for
+      the black and white versions of the toolbar icons.
+      XPM: requires a Windows port of the XPM library 3.4 or later,
+      which will be named xpm4.dll, libxpm-nox4.dll or
+      libxpm.dll. This format is used for the color versions of the
+      toolbar icons, and other images in Emacs.
+      PNG: requires the PNG reference library 1.2 or later, which will
+      be named libpng13d.dll, libpng13.dll, libpng12d.dll, libpng12.dll
+      or libpng.dll. LibPNG requires zlib, which should come from the same
+      source as you got libpng.
+      JPEG: requires the Independant JPEG Group's libjpeg 6b or later,
+      which will be called jpeg62.dll, libjpeg.dll, jpeg-62.dll or jpeg.dll.
+      TIFF: requires libTIFF 3.0 or later, which will be called libtiff3.dll
+      or libtiff.dll.
+      GIF: requires libungif or giflib 4.1 or later, which will be
+      called giflib4.dll, libungif4.dll or libungif.dll.
