Controversial swim FAQ accessible from

My program to convert text files to WWW text as mentioned below is not
necessary.  Very simple markers can be incorporated to tell WWW
readers to display text between the markers as would be seen with an
ordinary text reader (with some exceptions).  My apoligies for rushing
into this without doing my homework.

I will be preparing an information sheet on simple WWW publishing such
that any newsletter or set of results already prepared as plain text
can be practically instantaneously posted on the WWW by running
automated batch files or scripts.  This means it will be possible to
see results on the Internet virtually as soon as the event is over by
using text file information a timing system generates or by using
text files generated by swim software after coding of results.
