Thank you for those comments, Andrew. I hope to keep expanding the web
site albeit slowly. That includes adding more PDF copies of original
bibliographic references to the site for downloading (assuming there
are no copyright issues). As it stands now I have digitized well over
100 articles. If anyone has a hard time locating a particular reference
I can probably accomodate them.
