Due to growing Linux-hostility, I've switched to a different ISP for
when I'm travelling (I use a cable modem at home) and will be shutting
down my Sprynet home page at the end of the month.  Most of the
information there is badly out-of-date anyway, but there are a couple
of documents that I thought people might still need, so I've moved
them to the following locations:

1. "Node Properties in Jade" (a short Groves overview)

  Old location:
  New location:

2. "Heart of Darkness" (HTML welcome page)

  Old location:
  New location:

3. "Heart of Darkness" (XML document entity)

  Old location:
  New location:

I know that the XML Heart of Darkness, in particular, is used as a
test document for XML software writers: it gives a good workout for
external entities, and shows up a persistent bug in many XML software
packages (which don't know how to distinguish a text declaration from
an XML declaration).

All the best,
