A new URL definition document is available at locations


The document has a few changes which were mentioned at the Boston
BOF -- please send anything I've forgotten to me ASAP for inclusion
befoer the Washington.

(Note old WWW clients require "file:" prefix instead of "ftp:" prefix
for FTP archive documents, but latest library allows either during transition

Documents may be retrieved by URL: by sending mail to

listserv@info.cern.ch with a line containing the command SEND
followed by the URL of the document. If the document is in hypertext, the URLs
of linked documents are listed on the end of the reply. If in doubt send
message HELP to same address.

The software for the mail robot is available in ftp://info.cern.ch/pub/www/src

I won't be in DC but will expect a talk session to be set up with the
meeting... :-)
