Whatever extensions are decided on for any of the R stuff it is important
to realize that Windows (3.11) only lets you have one dot (.) and then
only 3 characters. The base name should be only 8 characters long as well.
Since I'm worrying about it a little these days I just want to put my 2 cents
worth in on this topic.

It is looking like a real pain to translate the current set of html files to
this format which means that there is going to be some real work required in
getting a 3.11 version going.

On a related note I really have started on the RSept and have postscript
functioning (once again big changes will be needed to get it to fly under
3.11 so it'll be a Win95 version first).

Getting dll's going is the next trick I'm going to try.
