Techwriters,

after a long time with experiments, "The User Friendly Manuals'
Website" has been changed to be more user friendly, mainly on demand
from users.

The most important changes are:

* It now uses frames. This facilitates a navigation column, making it
easier to find and reach the right frame. The frame borders are
movable so that you can adjust the total layout to your browser.

If you don't have a browser, which can show frames, it is no problem.
You will then see a page with instructions on what you can do, and
afterwards you will see the usual homepage.

* All the data files - incl. the basic homepage - are moved to a
new sub-directory, "ufm/". This means, that ...

- if you have *links* from your homepage to a specific data page,
you must change the links to the new position. Example: you have
a reference to ...~pip323/maillist.htm, the link should now be to
...~pip323/ufm/maillist.htm. Make sure to use lowercase letters.

- if you have a bookmark to a specific data page, you will have to
delete the old bookmark, find it again via the hompage, and set
the bookmark again.

* The index file has changed name to index.html (added an "l" <L> to
the end) because some search robots only indexes .html files. The
rest of the files will keep their .htm ending.

* I have included an open counter. The counter has previously been
secret, but I see no reason to continue with that. The counter
shows the true counts since 4 jan 1996, but the number of hits is
presumably somewhat higher because there has been periods where it
wasn't reliable.

I hope you will enjoy the improvements, and bear over with me when
you are doing the changes.
