So Jean tells me, no "a", it is my eyes, good excuse.

I thought about using it, then when all were wondering if Linux browsers
were going to be able to interpret it, I thought they would be unable to do
so. Am I wrong? Anyway, I ended up thinking it more of a frill than useful
for a plain old web site.

Thanks, I will as soon as I get a handle on what I am doing.

After installing RH 5.2 I have been tring to get drivers for my video card
using the new XFree86 RPMs, I'm busy making mistakes.

If you want to use a special font, you can put it on the server and refer to
it in HTML. Think I read that somewhere.
