Even then, I could live with that, as long I can *rely* on regular updates,
with a *fixed* format. But what is happening to the cross-reference lines
in SWISS-PROT? Looks like they (at least for EMBL) no longer give accession
number AND ID-code, but accession number and the PID-number, as can be found
in the CDS /note field. E.g. see the entry for CFTR_HUMAN in SWISSPROT:
DR EMBL; M28668; HSCFTRM.
and in SWISSNEW:
DR EMBL; M28668; G180332; -.
I know its not a big deal, and only matters for linking SRS, but I would have
appreciated that this had been announced somewhere; I might have adapted the
hyperlinks in SRS in time (hence the cross-post to bionet.software.gcg :-).
