Chet and others:
This is a heck of a setup, by the sound of it. Does anyone know other
applications (UNIX-centric) that can be used in a similar effort? We are
planning our internet and intranet links to (among other things) be able to
point to over thirty documents of software specifications and design
descriptions, etc. I would be grateful for any pointers. Network is HPUX
