We have developed the tool 'JAM' (Just Another Metaformat). A new version 
(Version 2.0) has been put into beta status (stage 3) as of today. 

Availability:
-------------
The location bioftp.unibas.ch has this version in the directory 
programs/bioftp-sw/jam2.0 - directories contain source code and description.

What does JAM ?
---------------

The program 'jam' (ASCII interface) or 'jamgui' (Graphical User Interface, 
made possible by using J.Kahn's VIBRANT toolkit) takes a sufficiently 
formatted text in 'JAM' format and produces wither HTML, LaTEX, or RTF 
format. Jam has been used to create a preliminary version of the 
'biocomputing survival guide', which will be released later this year in 
its final version (Preview and sources are available from the URL 
http://www.ch.embnet.org).

The purpose of this release of beta stage software is to collect productive
feedback on the enhancements and possible requirements for a final release.
