useful. I don't have the URL's handy but you should be able to find
them with any of the better search engines. These services allow
you to submit an URL by email; they retrieve the webpage via http
or ftp; and email it back to you.

To get that page (or most any other) by email, email to:
with the message:
The web page will be returned to you by email within a few minutes.
(There is a free usage restriction of 300 per week on this particular server.)
Regretably, this will not work with the ONElist file space as the email
access method is unable to handle the site entry security requirements.
