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.
