[jaws-uk] Re: jaws working with a.o.l.:

 Dear listers, In Tristram's message he mentions Vanilla ISOP's what is this
facility please? can someone please tell me how to telete a web address from
the favourites list and how to put the favourites list into alphabetical
order would also be useful.

Shortly I shall be purchasing a new computer, thinking of all of the aspects
of this process, can anyone tell me which broadband package is good and also
How much more difficult is XP to Win 98second edition?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
