HotDico Project.

DICO is a tool to consult multiple dictionaries or structured data on
a computer network developed at ISSCO (University of Geneva). It is
designed to accommodate various dictionary representations. In
addition to a set of basic searching mechanisms, it allows easy
addition of custom indexes.

 simplicity: tool that enables non-specialist users to lookup
 entries in dictionaries.
 accessibility: it should work in an environment of networked
 heterogeneous computers.
 expandability: it should be easy to add data, indexes.
 robustness: it should be resistant to hazards inherent to 
		 networks and inexperienced users

A WEB demo version of this tool is now available, with a Java User
