In compiling these papers we have taken every care to try and ensure that the CD gives as accurate as possible a representation of the original papers. Nevertheless with the wide range of different software, e-mail systems and computer configurations it is almost inevitable that there will have been some mis-translations or omissions which have escaped our proofreading. When using one of these papers in an important context, and especially if anything appears controversial or unlikely, we would always advise checking with the author.

Some compromises, especially with regard to graphics sizes and clarity, have been forced on us by the need ensure viewability on different screens and systems.
