pages in the style of this one. Important:
These web pages have been created as HTML sources. However, it
appears that the most recent WYSIWYG editors also do an acceptable
job in creating HTML. The computing homepage is one example. If you
modify computing web-pages, please either
edit these pages with a text editor or be very sure about
what you are doing or contact the Web Master for help.
