Dear Don (and all),

Indeed the CNAME srs.ebi.ac.uk will move to the SRS6.x server AFTER the
SRS5.1 service is phased out on February 18th. I appologise for not being
explicit about this in my posting. This means that links to: 

http://srs.ebi.ac.uk/ and http://srs6.ebi.ac.uk/ will work. However,
please note that the paths to wgetz will change: 

http://srs.ebi.ac.uk/srs5bin/cgi-bin/wgetz?.... will need to be replaced
with http://srs{6}.ebi.ac.uk/srs6bin/cgi-bin/wgetz?.... 

I will address the issue concerning a simplified index.html as soon as I

Regarding the databank of databanks: David Kreil is currently looking
into this issue. I understand there is a problem with the formats used in
SRS5.1 not being compatible with SRS6.x. Regardless, I expect a new
version of this function to appear soon. However, I'm not sure it will
include SRS5.1 servers. 

Hope this explains things a bit better,
