      Does anybody in this list still works at Symbolics ?
Do you mean: Yes, I work at Symbolics, and yes we could
authorize the Web publication of LispM documentation ?

      Could the Genera doc be made available in HTML or PDF format
      through the Web ?
  It's been on my list of things to do. There was a rumor that someone in
  Germany had actually done some working to get the document examiner
  to output to html, but both John Mallery and my attempts to contact
  the revelant party never received
  any answer.
Well, I work at what was Symbolics Graphics Division (and now
is Nichimen Graphics). So I do have all the equipment for trying
to do that.  If I reach some goal, could the doc be made publicly
available ?

      (Even whitout an HTML converter, Document examiner can print
      postcript to files, which can be turned into PDF)
Again, PDF from Postcript, even without Hyperlinks, could
be a first step to make a lot of people on this list know
what LispM were all about.
