re. b) -> I have a collection of HETERO entities which may contain
          what you are looking for.  It can be ftp-ed from
, directory pub/heteros, file hetero.pdb.Z
          (see the latest CCP4 Newsletter for a description).

re. a) -> I have programs to generate dictionary files for O and
          X-PLOR; if similar files for TNT (or any other refinement
          program, e.g. SHELX) are not too complicated, I would be
          willing to provide such functionality as well.  In that
          case I need a description of the format such files are
          to be in and perhaps an example file.  E-mail me directly
          at gerard at (the X-PLOR and O dictionary
          programs can be ftp-ed from the same place, but please
          check the README file before you download; also, these
          programs are discussed in the latest CCP4 Newsletter).
