This is merely what I wrote it in, not what will be made available. The
public release will be hosted in HTML at Tom Keith's site just as the
previous version: http://www.bkgm.com/gnu/AllAboutGNU.html

I will also make available a downloadable version in PDF at Nardy's
site, again, like the previous version. The DOC version was only
distributed to allow commentary to further improve it.

I can remove this, it is no problem, or add what the results were
derived from. Could you test the 2-ply nets to see how much they differ
by? It would also give an estimate for future versions on how much
improvement one could expect from the 2-ply.

Ok, I'll rewrite this part and send you the modification. Sorry for the
download trouble BTW.

I indeed thought your project was for the Palm, my mistake.
