	As far as I know :

	There is no sequence editor or multiple aplignment editor under
Seqweb. Seqlab has a gorgeous multiple alignment editor.

	Some options disapeared in the seqweb interface, I had no clear
answer on how they decided to remove some options (browse the group
in the archives, there was a little discussion).

	It seems that sequence files used by seqweb are not stored
in the user $HOME. So, if people are using text interface also, you
should have to do some formation and I don't how all of this is secure.
(Any information is welcome).

	If GCG could put better information (or made it, I can't check
GCG web site so often) on SeqWeb, we would be gratefull.
