1. I just got a problem with your new httpd on

   When I tried to access the file:

   with xmosaic 0.10, I got the following error message:

   HTFormat: Sorry, can't convert from application/binary to www/present.

   The line-mode browser www 1.3a produced the same error message.

   With www 2.0 an empty page were produced.

  After that I tried to use the new binary transfer mode feature of mosaic. 
  The result was a file with the above error message.

  The same problem occured with other files referenced from:
  for example: text2html.sed

2. Is it possible to get the files referenced from:
   via ftp ? 

   Or can someone put the files on under /WWW/dev ?
