tkWWW Version 0.7 alpha (joe at

World Wide Web (WWW) is a hypertext project which seeks to build a
world wide network of hypertext links.  There are several different
browsers for this system including a simple tty interface.  For a 
demo of the terminal browsers for WWW, telnet to the following sites:

 telnet or telnet (SWISS)
 telnet or telnet (USA [NJ])
 telnet or telnet  (ISRAEL)
 telnet or telnet (FINLAND)

 and login as "www"

Tk is an interpreted toolkit which allows one to build X11 applications
quickly and easily.
