I speak a lot of languages, John, but computer programming languages do not
number among them. Thanks for trying, but I wouldn't have the first idea
even how to pour what you sent me into the "Macintosh Runtime for Java" app
that comes with Mac OS 8.5.

Mark suggests that I use DreamWeaver or GoLive! These aren't in the
Info-Mac archives, and I don't even know what they are. Are they HTML
editors? Apparently they are commercial. I don't know how expensive they
could be... but is it worth it to produce one web page I wonder?

I got one answer, what to paste in the header. The other question, what
CAPITAL LETTER D WITH DOT ABOVE is, remains unanswered....
