Syd Hall has asked me to make available on the web some documents
providing background and demonstrations of the topics that he and
Nick Spadaccini will present at the COMCIFS meeting in Geneva on
13 August. They're at the URL

(You may find difficulty in downloading the XML files since existing
browsers can attempt to render them in an inappropriate way; in that case,
please save them to disk, download the tar archive indicated on that page,
or ask me to send you the files by email).

Please look at these materials in advance of the meeting if you have an
interest in these topics; however, please do *not* open a discussion
about them beforehand, since people are rather busy at the moment.

As a reminder, the full programme for the meeting is copied below.
