You say, "its late at night and my eyesight is fading so I'm simply not up to
parsing the installation instructions for variuos parts of WWW written
as they are in HTML".
The basic installation instructions are also in the line mode
browser tar file in plain text. That will allow you to get the
line mode browser (www) up. 9You can probably get a binary anyway).
Then you can use that to change HTML into text
www -n -p -na xxxx.html
will give you a non-interactive unpaged link-free formatted
text output. What more can you want?
If there is something crucial missing from the .txtx files
shipped, then tell firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want more
information about other bits without getting www up, then
just telnet to info.cern.ch and read it on line.
Actually, we plan to make a combined user manual availabl
in postscript and TeX in the same way as the_www_book.ps.Z
dumped from the hypertext. Later.
