Please report all errors and problems to me by email to the address
[log in to unmask] By all means also post queries to the newsgroups
and mailing lists, but please copy them to me also if you want them to
If you are responsible for other lists, groups, or sites which link
to the old address (http://www.ucc.ie/xml/) I would be grateful if
you would update them. The old (uppercase) fragment identifiers are
still in place for backward compatibility, but if you link to the FAQ,
please use the new page structure.
