Added by: pmr on Tue Oct 11 18:19:00 GMT 1994 On the one-letter code questions (in amino-acid assessment), the box is sometimes on a different line from its label - would help a lot if the spacing was not uniform, so you could see the pairings.

great tool, but unfortunately the questions requiring verbose input can't be automatically graded. How will this sort of thing be handled in the actual course?

The formatting on this comment section needs to be repaired, as it looks like one's comments are submitted by the prvious commentor.

the disulphide bond question can sort of be answered by a tool used by the maths dept in Univ of Minnesota's www page. Sorry don't have url but is available from best of web 94 in the technical section. A free hand drawing can be submitted which can be retrieved by the server. i don't know how it will compare to the right structure though.Hope this helps.

Could you distribute a
configuration file for
latex2html so that any
pages that I write can
have pointers to the
standard index pages ?
