Since the FAQ Part 4 lists details of the various systems, my idea for this FAQ is more of a directory with easy to find and read entries. If you are interested, I have this data available in a data base format, either .DBF .WDB comma or Tab delimited. (Maybe even .WKS) The Format (as much as possible) is: Company Name; Contact Person: Voice Phone Mailing Address; w/ country Products; Fax # EMail Addr; Web Page One Line description (approx 64 char)
