I have a LOT of errors where the URL has missed out the vsns-pps field (e.g.)
httpd: access to /work4/www/httpd/htdocs/modules/index.html failed

I have a very slow line in the evenings and cannot use a screen-based editor - sorry! (PeterMR)

(1) Malate dehydrogenase in citric acid cycle can be either mitochondrial or cytosolic. TCA cycle in inside mitochondrion, MDB structure is cytoplasmic form!
(2) on linking to MDH info at Geneva, the Geneva machine sent back "an invalid true-type font/character" ...

Format looks good .. can we sign up students just as observers on the system?? GF

Dear PMR,

On your Latest Info page,
the link for What's New is F***ed.

The home page address (http://seqnet.dl.ac.uk:8000/vsns-pps) immediately jams my PowerMac6100 running MacWeb. No problem with IBM system running Mosaic. I was able to enter thru back door ...vsns-pps/comments.html on the Mac with no proble. Thankls for keeping the back door open.

I can only sympathise, since I haven't any idea how to fix it.
Hints from others would be useful.
For example, should we remove the GIF at the top?
(BTW I expect to get a number of client-sensitive problems
like this. For example Mosaic often cannot display
a row of GIFs, and SG's X-windows gives
ludicrously small windows for fomrs which
is why this message is a disaster.
The form is LITERALLY 10 chars wide
whatever I put in the HTML
