Well, yes. (: But the above "missing" info may be a browser problem,
as I found that it's in the HTML source of the page I was looking at
- it being the same page you gave. The "<," was tripping up my
(Amiga) browser. Checking with the three Amiga browsers I have, I
find both IBrowse and Voyager didn't display the rest of that
sentence, but AWeb did. These are hardly state-of-the-art browsers,
so we shouldn't be too hard on RT about this. Just a little hard. (:
