Here is a copy of my monthly article detailing what is new in my Stefan's
Florilegium for November. My appologies for this notice being a little bit
late, but my unexpected hospital stay delayed things a bit.

I am currently in the process of moving the 1200+ files in the Florilegium 
to a new site. While I am taking great pains to ensure that all the files are
still accessible from the addresses given below, mistakes still creep in. If
you have trouble reaching a file, please let me know by email so that I may
fix the problem as soon as possible.


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past nine years in an ongoing effort, I have been collecting bits of 
useful information from various newsgroups, mail lists and articles submitted 
to me by their authors. In order to make this information available to others, 
I have placed this information in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium website now has new front door site. This site is at:

While most of the files will still reside at the old address the latest 
updated files and index files will be at the new site.

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special marker
in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file -updated-files is
a listing of these files in chronological order.

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the website. 
This filelist or any of my files is also available from me by email in either 
Word 6.0 or text formats.
