I also notice that you are using Netscape to post this so you can do a
Save As when you find the correct article although Netscape tends to choke
on large articles.

the file when saved to my hard drive was approximately 380K. You should be
running system 7.x for drag and drop to work. If you are running earlier
system versions you can launch StuffIt Expander and Expand (command-E) the
file from within StuffIt Expander.

If all else fails and I have the author's permission, I will throw up a
web page of the text and graphics and post the URL sometime tomorrow.

this should read: Append .uu to the *file name* of the downloaded
Superbroth file and drag and drop it over Stufftit Expander
