Huh.  That's good to know - I guess I've always focused on the pdflatex
side of hyperref.  I'd better stop assuming things.

WOW!  Very impressive!  You have a good instinct for this Bill - I'd
probably have fussed with pdflatex stuff for another week.

Hmm.  Or better still, we need to provide a conditional somewhere that
will link to the dvi in dvi files and the pdf in pdf files.  There is
probably some way to do this, althought it will probably involve
"conditional latex" - IIRC for the graphics command I used in
maximabook it could be intelligent about including pdf/png vs.
postscript based on output.

Huh!  Well, live and learn.  I wonder why I never found that when I was
working with that cteq manual...

I'll have to check at home - my work machine has no dvi viewer.

I expect for slow internet connections it might be.  VERY impressive
result Bill!
