Isa. 42:3

It is I think a rule of this list that no attachments are to be sent. And
this is for a very good reason. Some of us may still be using archaic e-mail
programs which don't accept attachments. But more relevant is that some of
us are still forced to use slow and expensive Internet connections. So we
don't want to be sent unsolicited large files, especially RTF and HTML which
can be very large, and even more especially if we are also to be sent the
fonts for them which make the files even larger.

So can I suggest two better ways to distribute your paper: 1) offer to send
the file by e-mail to anyone who requests it off-list, or 2) put it on a web

I'd be VERY interested in seeing it.  One way to distribute it by
email is to use your word processor to save it in a cross-program
format such as rtf or html and send it as an attachment.  If there
are special fonts, it might be a good idea to create a zip file with
the paper and the fonts bundled together.  If you want to go this
way and need help with it, contact me offlist.  This sort of thing is
pretty much what I do all day when I'm not buried in Hebrew :-)
