Dear Colleague,

Many thanks for your message about being unable to access the
Celtic-Latin site. The URL you were trying is correct; the
problem is that the relevant Queen's University server has gone
off-line at the moment, and holidays in that part of the world
mean that it may not be fixed until later this week.

It is ironic that, having worked perfectly during tests over
the last month, the server should go down the very day that our
site was publicly announced. We do appreciate your interest, and
ask you not to give up on us; we think you will find the site
worth a visit once that is again possible.

With apologies for the inconvenience caused,

Best wishes

Anthony Harvey

a marvellous study of the hypertextual aspects of <cite>Huckleberry
Finn</cite> which invites readers to entertain a
base-superstructure view of the node-link relation (full biblio
available upon request -- I'm not anywhere near the library copy
or my notes and my memory fails me...)]
