Some of you have already discovered there is a new experimental World
Wide Web Server running at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in Palo
Alto, California. The address is pubweb.parc.xerox.com. See:

<A HREF="http://pubweb.parc.xerox.com:80/">Xerox PARC PubWeb Server</A>

Currently the only documents available are via a custom map rendering
service -- yet another experiment in providing dynamic information
retrieval via World Wide Web.

The Map Viewer is implemented as as a perl script that accepts requests
for map renderings (encoded as URLs) and returns HTML documents
including a Mosaic-style inlined GIF image of the requested map. It
does not yet take advantage of the Mosaic extensions for detecting
mouse positions within an image.

Eventually we may use this server to publish some general information
about PARC and perhaps provide access to published PARC technical
