Subject: CD-ROM Dictionaries - report

Here is some information on CD-ROM English dictionaries that I have been
able to find. I appreciate the information which was sent. Many of
these seem to be available in MAC and Windows versions. Thomas Creswell
told me of an article he has written which seems to be the best source
of information on the subject. =20
