Forwarded message:
> 
> The International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, 4th Edition Draft
> for Discussion, along with Explanatory Notes, is now available online.
> 
> The Draft Code itself is available in three formats:
> 
>    1) plain ASCII text,
>    2) Postscript (very large file!), and
>    3) Postscript in a PKZIP file (significantly smaller than the
>       raw Postscript version; you need PKUNZIP to decompress it).
> 
> MAKE SURE to retrieve the Explanatory Notes also; they contain
> important information from the Commission about the Draft Code.
> The Notes file is plain ASCII text (called ICZNREAD.ME in the ftp version).
> 
> You can obtain the Explanatory Notes and any of the Draft Code formats
> using ftp, www, or gopher. Shown below are the Internet node address
> (for ftp and gopher), the URL for the www, and the menu choices.
> 
> The Postscript format is only useful for printing or viewing on
> a system that supports Postscript.
> 
> Shortly, the availability of a LISTERV, exclusively for discussing this
> Draft, will be announced. Watch here.
> 
> Acknowledgements:
> The ICZN Editorial Committee agreed to make these online documents
> available for comment.  F. Christian Thompson, USDA, and Committee
> member, provided the ASCII text and Postscript versions. Jim Beach,
> UCB/MIP, and Julian Humphries, Cornell, made available the MUSE Project
> ftp/www/gopher Systematics, Biological Collections and Biodiversity
> server, where these files are posted.
