The FAQ is currently one year out of date. I realize that this makes it an inaccurate guide to the latest and best of what's available on the web. However, it remains a useful document, and so this edition will continue to be available. I hope to write a new edition before 1997 is out.
This document is available from many sites, and in several languages. Please use the site closest to you in the language of your choice.

This FAQ consists of many files. By popular request, it is now available as an MSDOS .ZIP file, as a Unix compressed .tar file, and as a single, large text file. If you have trouble browsing HTML files offline under Windows, please see the relevant FAQ entry.

Of course, to get the latest and greatest information, it is best to browse it right here on the web!
