Subject: Re: Natalie, how 'bout this idea?
Could we solicit syllabi for dialect-related courses and set up a
place for them on the web page. Not being a veteran teacher, myself,
I would find this very helpful. Ellen
Sounds like a great idea to me. If anybody wants to contribute syllabi,
just e-mail them to me and I'll set up the page immediately. HTML would
be desirable, but plain ASCII will do. The syllabi and handouts that I
have on my classes' web pages are just ASCII copies of the WP originals
that I've added the very basic HTML markings to, including pre , which
means you don't have to go through and mark things like lines breaks and
paragraph breaks. The pre means "just use the spacing etc. of the ASCII
document." I couldn't live without pre in doing the job ads and calls
for papers on our web pages.
But keep in mind that we're moving toward the time when I'm going to be
gone for a little over a year. So far nobody has volunteered to take
over ADS-L or suggested what to do about the web, gopher, and ftp files.
