"GARCH Estimates" to Free Software. Corrected link for Brian's Books
and the name of Computer Literacy in Book Resellers. Added to the
Fortran Library FAQ. Made changes to the logo on all pages in an
attempt to make the site work with Internet Explorer. It appears
that IE does not perform image vertical centering properly, so I had to
enter a top/bottom border around the image to emulate centering when "lower-left"
placement origin was selected (what a kludge). Also, there appear
to be differences in reference when "percent of cell" is used for table
cell sizes, so I fixed the size of the "A Scientific & Technical Programming
Resource" table row (background image) in pixels.

|8 March 2000
||For those interested in the Fortran FAQ page just added, I do not intend
to plagiarize content from other collections and so this section will take
some time to build up and will need to be "under construction" for awhile.
I also have not decided on the best format for the content. I will
probably gravitate to a format that is easy to update as well as easy for
user's to print out the entire listing (the current structure does not

Optimization" and "Optimization Theory with Applications". Added
"Statistics Code From University of Washington" to Free Software.
