Thanks to everyone who forwarded their experiences with moving to electronic
distribution of administrative and teaching documents. If I might strain
the patience of Humanist readers further, I wonder if I could inquire about
examples of a specific mode of publishing, i.e. simultaneous multi-media

What we'd like to build are undergraduate and graduate handbooks that reside
in a single set of files but which can be used in two distinct modes: as the

the printed copy can help a student using the hypertext version without any
