  Soloman Feferman's local expert says:

  The local expert is of course quite right, and so my earlier remarks
are relevant only if you find, when clicking on one of the papers, that
a load of junk (that is, postscript code) is read into the browser
window. (A *.ps file is given special treatment by Netscape, but apparently
not if it emerges only through on-the-fly unzipping.)
