Yes, although it's primarily so that I can learn how to do it. The
application is a newsletter published by a non-profit user group that
we want to distribute electronically in hypertext searchable form to
all Internet-connected members. The good news is that I'm helping on
this as a volunteer so there's no time pressure and no unreasonable
expectations. The bad news is that I'm doing it gratis, but I'm
learning a lot about delivering information online.
The Mosaic implementation would be an adjunct to a print version of
the same newsletter.
With the explosive growth of the Internet, I expect a lot more
Mosaic-like database servers to be popping up and a lot of authors who
want to put stuff on them.
