"Just the information you need". I like it :-) If this becomes popular, I'd
be most interested in a WML client to install on my PC. Bandwidth today (at
least in this part of the world) is such that all the useless bells and
whistles people put in web site are more annoying then entertaining. Using
Lynx isn't quite it; the HTML pages aren't designed for such "dumbing down"
and besides, I'd still like to see a bitmap display with better font
support, minimal color use, etc. WML might be just the thing.

Have fun,
