Strange, Netscape doesn't seem to have this problem and I
cannot see why it should be a problem at for graphical
browsers in general.

However you do point out something we are missing:
an index.html file in the /usr/doc/HOWTO/ directory
to give a more friendly list of files. I see we
already have a HOWTO-INDEX available in HTML format.
Unfortunately this is rendered into 6 separate files
so what about making a brief index, and then point
to the HOWTO-INDEX for a more comprehensible list?

On this Redhat 5.0 machine the structure is
/usr/doc/HOWTO				- text files
/usr/doc/HOWTO/other-formats/html	- HTML files
The index file will have to be tailored to the
structure in order to make it usable.
