Dear all (and Robin)
Due to popular demand, I changed the url so as to decrease randomness:
Will you please, if you agree with the new url,
change the link in the latex2html section of the faq.
As regards availability of hevea on CTAN, I am not sure that CTAN archiving
is the right solution for hevea, which is not really a part
of latex and whose installation (from source, I see no other option
on CTAN) implies installing Caml, etc.
In any case, I do appreciate some links in the FAQ. But I can
understand your policy.
