Nope.  It is mainly at your end.

It's already there, and works fine, though a little monochrome.

This is an alias for both servers.

The European metaserver is no longer available, so this address
translates to one of the US metaservers.  And, incorrect URL, add :1080/
to the end.

If you want to remember the 1080 somehow, it's a fox poison we use on
our farm here.  Sodium fluoroacetate.  

I've applied a patch to the metaserver in CVS to:

- better form the HTML by including a <body> tag set,
- remove the link to the European metaserver,
- change title to Netrek Metaserver.

I'll take patches to improve the style of the output, such as the use of
embedded CSS or a CSS from www.netrek.org.  The world wide web has
adopted colour since I wrote the disp_web.c module.

I'd also like to consider having the output in XML with a stylesheet, so
that the www.netrek.org site could syndicate it.
