Message 1: InterArbora - tree delivery service

From: Jo Calder <J.Caldered.ac.uk>
Subject: InterArbora - tree delivery service

The Language Technology Group of the University of Edinburgh is
pleased to announce the provision of a new Internet service --- tree
delivery. Visit the web page,

http://www.ltg.ed.ac.uk/~jo/interarbora/

provide a bracketed string, press submit and have the tree delivered
direct to your desk top. There is normally a short delay when you
first use this service, in order for Java to start, and for the
InterArbora code to be shipped across.

The tree you receive can be edited, and you can generate a PostScript
format.

Happy tree drawing, 

- Jo Calder
