I guess you have to go through the front door at

and let them log your email address.

    I tried to follow the link but was told that my client lacks permission 
    to get the URL. Who dispenses such permission?

    |        Are you saying that a TeX widget could be developed from the current
    |        TeX source code?  As I understand it, this would not be too easy, but
    |        not _that_ hard either, as long one does not try to implement it as an
    |        editable widget.
    |
    |     No.  I'm saying that something can be ginned up to produce hypertext
    |     documents from dvi files (with appropriate \special's).  That would
    |     keep the TeX/LaTeX community happy until something better could be
    |     done.
    |
    | Latex2html already has such a feature.  see
    | http://www.ELSEVIER.NL/WWW94/PrelimProcs.html

    | Might be best to get Nikos Drakos (nikos@cbl.leeds.ac.uk) into the loop.
