Anything Ewan?? As you are just up the corridor, I'll give some
thought to my prize for suggesting the following:

a) no frames
============

You can lose the frames by going for just the manual section of
interest.  For example, using NetScape:

Go to the SRS top page:

	http://www.sanger.ac.uk/srs5/

Go to the SRS manual page:

	http://www.sanger.ac.uk/srs51/man/srsman.html

In the left hand frame (list of sections) Middle-button click on the one
you want, for exmaple SRSWWW for the Web server interface, and it
will pop up in a new frame-free window

	http://www.sanger.ac.uk/srs51/man/mtoc_srswww.html

... magically, you are reading that section without frames.

b) printed copy
   ============

Middle-button Click on *any* link in the table of contents to bring up
the manual text in a new window.

	http://www.sanger.ac.uk/srs51/man/mi_srswww.html#intro

Then print from NetScape and you have a printed manual.


P.S. Note for Chris Upton (who started this thread) : Kate Neill sends
her regards :-)
