Default New URL for FAQ site

The new url for the FAQ web site for this group is http://winefaq.cwdjr.net/
.. I have just pointed the name servers to it and it is working for me.
It could be another day or two before those in some locations can
reach the site. I takes some time to associate the name of the site
with the string of numbers that is the real address This site is a
subdomain of my domain cwdjr.net. Thus the FAQ will not work unless
the main domain is working. If you can not get the winefaq site after
a day or two, go to http://www.cwdjr.net. Then reload the current page
with your browser controls. If you are getting the domain on the main
server, then the message will be "On new server. Bye" If you get the
message "Bye", you are still on the old server that will be
disconnected in about two weeks. Since this is a new name for the FAQ
subdomain site, it will not be found on the old server. If you still
have problems, post here.

The character encoding has been changed from (iso-8859-1) to Unicode
(UTF-8). Most new browsers now come with this set be default, but you
can select from various character encoding on your browser. The
advantage of Unicode is that it can display characters in nearly all
languages. This will be of no concern for most of you, but it might be
of concern to Mark Lipton when he makes updates. You can add all of
the special characters and symbols of Eastern European languages if
you wish. You can do the same for some Oriental languages, but
downloads of character sets may be required for some computers to
display these languages.

The site loads just fine for me, so the DNS records have propagated at
least as far as Comcast's name servers. REgarding the character
encoding, no problems: I already post my version to the newsgroup as a
UTF-8 document, so that's what you should be getting, too.

Hi Mark

May I respectfully suggest that you change your tag line on your signature,
to the new address!

Owing to the continued, rapid expansion of the NZ wine scene, I am also
going to review the NZ segment - how do you want me to handle this - I am
thinking along the lines of a complete re-write - correcting some formatting
"inconsistencies".

Would send that to you as a .doc file - if that is OK.

It won't happen overnight, but will happen!

Cheers

st.helier

Good point, milud. The purpose of the Peerage is now made clear to a
simple commoner such as myself. See the results in my sig now (I'll
have to change it on my other computers tomorrow). No problem about the
.doc file: that's how I operate anyway. Do you want me to send you the
current version as a .doc file? And no hurry -- I've got plenty of work
on the FAQ to keep me busy.
