Links corrected. As for the logos I have a trouble since I am using netscape 
composer for edition and it does not understand image links in other 
directories.

This needs some editing which I will now do.

One agian I do not see how to do that:

- the resulting HTML page  for a query is build dynamically, thus:

Assuming a mirror site M and a client C somewhere else:

   - C asks a query from the index page provided by M.
   - C thus sends a query to Paris which cannot know that a previous query was 
      made by C to M.

We now use WebGlimpse which needs a database named gwindex.html in the server 
home directory and related cgi-bin. I cannot be sure that it is properly 
running on any mirror (or existing!).

Thanks for the corrections. I cannot understand why I made absolute queries to 
the source server!
